By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Recognise timber as an engineering material and explain the inherent strengths and weaknesses of this organic and ‘living’ material
Identify the cellular structure of timber in relation to softwoods and hardwoods, and appreciate the species identification strategies available
Appreciate the timber grading rules to softwoods and hardwoods, and employ the rules and strategies in assigning strength classes to timber used in existing structures
List the non-destructive testing techniques available in assessing timber used in historic structures
Distinguish the simple structural forms of constructions used in historic structures, and use the available methods to assess the strengths and stiffnesses of individual timber components and joints
Graduates through to senior structural engineers.
Familiarity with timber engineering may be beneficial, but is not essential.

Learn how to sketch on a tablet to create and edit work within the digital workflow in this interactive course taking place as a series of two-hour sessions over three weeks. This course aims to help attendees in the use of electronic sketching as an integral part of their design thinking, enabling sketch practice across interoperable platforms.
A series of two-hour interactive sessions taking place over three weeks to help experienced practitioners take their conceptual design skills to the next level. There will be a focus on understanding client needs, generating, and iteratively developing ideas, effective decision making in design, and managing design teams.
