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 one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
This one-day, online course delivers key advice and guidance on the seismic design of structures to Eurocode 8, as well as the application of the Eurocode. Emphasis is placed on reinforced concrete buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
This two-day, online course provides participants with an understanding of the basic principles of temporary works design.
This one-day, online course covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2.
This one-day, online course examines changes between BS 5950 and Eurocode 3. The emphasis is on buildings and the provision of general rules for buildings of EN 1993-1-1 and design of joints to EN 1993-1-8.
