By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Apply a qualitative approach to the solution of a range of framed structures
Apply checking protocols for computer output and establish a reliable interpretation of the results
Apply the qualitative approach to the approximate analysis of structures as an aid to the creation of the structural model
Determine appropriate protocols for the development of these skills in the design office
Recent graduates from BEng or MEng courses. As the course is non-numerical, it will also be of interest to those from other construction disciplines who wish to obtain a basic introduction to structural engineering.
Developed originally for the Arup Partnership, the course has run continuously for several decades for many of the UK's leading consultants.
Dr David Brohn CEng FIStructE teaches structural engineering in the UK and internationally. David pioneered the ‘Brohn Test’ in the early 1970s, leading the way in evidence based tracking of levels of understanding structural behaviour amongst graduates. He was awarded the Institution's President’s Award in recognition of his visionary approach to the education of students and graduates.
Tim Lai is founder of The Structural Exam and Operations Director for New Paradigms. He teaches budding graduates in the UK and
internationally about structural engineering, finance and entrepreneurship. Formerly an Engineering Leadership Award winner with the Royal Academy of Engineering, he worked at Shell as an Offshore Structural Engineer before venturing into entrepreneurship. Tim is also an accredited journalist writing at Forbes.com.
