This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
This one-day, online advanced practical workshop will teach complex timber engineering through worked examples. It encourages problem-solving through teaching tools and group discussion.
This course covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2. Participants will be introduced to concrete material properties and learn about designing for durability and fire.
This course provides an introduction to structural steelwork design to Eurocode 3 for building design.
This one-day online course introduces timber as an engineering material, with a focus on its use in historic structures. It covers non-destructive techniques for condition assessment, and strategies for the reuse of heritage structures.
This course equips attendees with practical knowledge about structural design with bamboo stems (culms). The course considers aspects of concept design, detailed design and durability by design.
