Designing to the Eurocodes

A range of courses and manuals created to help you with code compliance.

Eurocodes are a common language for engineers, owners, operators, designers, contractors and manufacturers across the continent of Europe. The code of practice is designed by engineers for engineers and they became mandatory for European public works in 2010. There are ten Eurocodes covering all aspects of the structural design and development of buildings. 


Eurocode CPD Training Courses

The Institution offers training for nine of the Eurocodes. Each course helps you understand the essential requirements of the code for your structural design, how the code operates, and how the code can support your work. If you have missed out on a course you are interested in, join the waiting list and you will be notified when it is rescheduled.
