This two day practical course presents methods for using computational design within engineering design. Compared to other courses focusing on complex geometry in Grasshopper or Excel VBA to automate simple tasks, the tutors of this course will try to instigate a more efficient mindset to approach engineering in the 21st century. It will be done by giving an overview of many tools and techniques which can speed up the workflow and offer new ways to solve old problems.
By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Lorenzo Greco is a structural engineer skilled in software development. His main areas of expertise are optimisation and machine learning for engineering, computational methods for engineering, and various programming languages. He and his partners have founded raphos.com to offer advanced technological solutions. Harri Lewis helped found Ramboll Computational Design (RCD). After completing his MPhil in Digital Architectonics, he returned to RCD, but later joined the Specialist Modelling Group at Foster + Partners. Harri is the founder of Mule Studio, which works in the fields of engineering, architecture, industrial design and research. Intended for Students or professional engineers.

This conference, designed and developed by young engineers, provides a platform for exploring critical issues. Technical presentations and a practical workshop will explore the use of glass and timber as alternatives to the more widely used concrete and steel, with a focus on how this can help with lowering the carbon footprint of a project.
Edoardo Tibuzzi of AKT-II uses case studies to discuss how custom tools improve design workflows.
Find out about the required BIM standards and protocols and how BIM and information management can get the most from your design team models
Blast resilience and resistance training
Training practising engineers to undertake the full structural design of a building, including designing a robust building to avoid disproportionate collapse.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to (i) interpret lawyers’ jargon (ii) identify which legal issues are critical in a negotiation (iii) recognise how to use the contract during the progress of a project or delivery of a service
