This course presents practical guidance on key aspects of preliminary scheme development and detailed scheme design in structural steelwork.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Compare steel construction options available at preliminary scheme development and determine the optimum design solution
  • Apply a simple methodology for preliminary sizing of members to enable budget costing to be developed
  • Judge the significance of steel grade and subgrade for structural steelwork and how to specify them
  • Describe the responsibilities for different parties under CE Marking
  • Describe key aspects of robustness and corrosion protection
  • Design for fire and assess the benefits of critical temperature calculation for fire protection
  • Identify resources available to assist with the use of structural steelwork in construction


Intended for

Primarily, structural engineers, but the course has been structured to concentrate on good practice in steel construction rather than focus on how to complete design calculations.

Entry criteria

Familiarity with steel construction  would be helpful, but is not essential.
