A series of two hour interactive webinars taking place over four weeks, supported by individual study in between.

This course provides a theoretical framework for understanding conceptual design in the context  of structural engineering. 

It includes how to interpret a client brief, strategies for generating ideas in response to a brief, and rapid, iterative modelling and testing of ideas.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you should be able to:  

  • Explain the design process as a series of discrete steps
  • Describe the characteristics of a good design brief and use this knowledge to write your own brief
  • Describe and use techniques for idea generation
  • Describe and use techniques for modelling and testing your ideas

Intended for

Structural engineers who are preparing to take the Institution's Chartered Membership exam.
