By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Characterise the design process and describe how each stage requires different skills and attitudes
Describe how conceptual design differs from detailed design and the consequences of these differences for how design is carried out
Use techniques for understanding the underlying need behind a client brief
Describe a model for idea generation and use this to lead a design team through the creative process
Understand the relationship between modelling, testing and the design brief, and use this to establish an effective iterative design process Understand the nature of subjective decision-making in design
Describe strategies for building an effective design team
Structural engineers with at least five years’ experience in practice and experience of managing other people as part of the design process.

This popular course includes guidance on the design, stability, safety and performance of tall buildings.
This practical course introduces engineers to various computational design methods and systems. You will experiment with visual programming (using Grasshopper) and text-based programming (using C#). You will see how automation can improve engineers’ workflows. No previous experience is required.
This course demonstrates the similarities between stadium engineering and other types of design. It stresses the importance of the Class 3 structure review regulations and the critical compliance with stadium design guides.
This course covers aspects of the geotechnical and structural design of spread and piled foundations. It is tailored for engineers working in small practices. The content is compliant with Eurocodes 2 and 7, with opportunities for comparisons with relevant British Standards.
This course supports the practising designer with the transition to Eurocode-based design for composite building structures. It will enable you to understand the essential requirements of this code for your structural design, how the code operates and how it can support you.
This popular course provides a theoretical framework for understanding conceptual design in the context of structural engineering.
This course gives guidance on the key considerations when planning the construction of deep basements. It covers using both embedded wall bottom-up and top-down construction in accordance with Eurocodes 2 and 7.
This course introduces advanced topics in timber design to Eurocode 5, including fasteners and connectors.
Provides a theoretical framework for rapid problem solving concept calculations
