A conference dedicated to best practices in integrating climate emergency teaching into academic curricula, and professionalism and ethics in both academic environments and workplaces.
This course will equip attendees with practical knowledge about structural design with bamboo stems (culms). The course considers aspects of concept design, detailed design and durability by design.
This inaugural e-conference is dedicated to helping structural engineers understand how to assess, strengthen and reuse existing concrete structures to extend their life and reduce the impact the built environment profession has on the environment.
This one day, face-to-face course provides an overview of accounting principles and an explanation of accounting terminology. It also covers how three key financial documents are produced.
This half-day, face-to-face course assists engineers working in the domestic sector for householders or small businesses.
This two days, face-to-face course teaches engineers communication skills, building on specific engineering scenarios and examples.
This one day, face-to-face course is designed to give you knowledge and experience of being in court. You will be cross-examined by a practising barrister in a protected environment to improve your technique, so you can be confident if you are called to give evidence.
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.
