Colloquium: The Making of a Structural Engineer-Education, Training, and Professional Development. What Needs to be Learned and When

This paper focuses attention on the fundamental vocational learning needs of a typical practising structural engineer. Different types of experience from which we learn are identified and discussed. After a brief discussion on the nature of learning, specific areas of learning are considered in relation to the several stages of the engineer’s career. Suggestions are made on the allocation of academic course time to specific areas of learning. J.S. Armitage
