This course provides a theoretical framework for understanding conceptual design in the context of structural engineering. It will include understanding the overall process of design, where conceptual design fits within the process, how to interpret a client brief, strategies for generating ideas in response to a brief, and rapid, iterative modelling and testing of ideas.
By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Oliver Broadbent is an expert facilitator and trainer in design thinking for the built environment. With a background in civil engineering and teaching, he specialises in designing high-impact training that has a lasting effect on the learner.
He is Founder and Director of engineering training consultancy Constructivist. There he leads the development of Constructivist’s programme of design training for design consultancies. He also works with universities including Cambridge, Bath and Imperial to develop innovative approaches to curriculum design and delivery.
For eight years Oliver was Director of Think Up, the education arm of the Useful Simple Trust. Oliver has co-authored a series of good practice teaching guides for the Royal Academy of Engineering on experience-led learning, e-learning for engineers, effective industrial engagement in engineering education and how to teach sustainability. He is a Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor at Imperial College, London.
