These courses are aimed at graduates developing their design skills.
The course is also suitable for practicing engineers making the transition from British Standards to the Eurocodes.
The course runs on Mondays over five weeks. The date of a sixth week (18 March 2024) is included in case one of the preceding sessions has to be postponed due to any unforeseen reason.
This course is on foundations design. As with previous courses, the first week will be used to introduce the basic principles of design to the Eurocodes, EC0 and EC1.

This course will equip structural engineers with fundamental knowledge of foundation analysis and design according to Eurocode 7 principles.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This advanced one-day, online course delivers practical advice through the use of worked examples on dynamic analysis, conceptual design for earthquake resistance and seismic design of structural elements to Eurocode 8. Emphasis is placed on concrete and steel buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
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 half-day in-person course provides guidance to early-career structural engineers to develop a better understanding of geotechnical engineering and use that knowledge to enhance and promote sustainable design.
This course is designed to provide structural engineers with a greater understanding of fire safety, key legislation, and the principles of risk analysis in order to ensure that adequate structural performance in fire is achieved. Participants will examine case studies of structural and non-structural failures as a result of fire.
This one-day, in-person course is designed to give you knowledge and experience of being in court. You will be cross-examined by a practising barrister in a protected environment to improve your technique, so you can be confident if you are called to give evidence.
