This evolving series of FAQs provides guidance on considerations when acting in the humanitarian and international development sector.
This case study examines assessing and improving the wind resistance of bamboo emergency shelters in the Rohingya refugee camps.
This resource features two case studies. They describe how engineers engaged with the local community following the earthquake of 2015.
This course provides an overview of accounting principles and an explanation of accounting terminology. It also covers how to understand key financial documents.
Discover how to be successful in your management career and whether management is the direction for you. This interactive two-day course gives first-time managers a toolbox of techniques to use for managing engineers and other technical staff.
This half-day course is for engineers working with domestic and smaller commercial clients. It covers specific contractual and legal issues that practitioners may encounter, and outlines common legal mistakes that can be avoided.
This course covers aspects of the geotechnical and structural design of spread and piled foundations. It is tailored for engineers working in small practices. The content is compliant with Eurocodes 2 and 7, with opportunities for comparisons with relevant British Standards.
This course presents practical guidance on key aspects of preliminary scheme development and detailed scheme design in structural steelwork.
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 interactive online course will share current state-of-the-art frameworks for the adoption of resilience-based design in professional practice, demonstrating advantages compared to a traditional prescriptive design and providing examples of how they benefit the client.
This course takes place as a series of two-hour interactive sessions over three weeks. It introduces EN 1991-1-4 for determining wind actions on structures, outlines the basic principles behind the code and covers each step of the procedure for calculating the wind loads on structures. Attention is given to important features introduced by the UK NA.
This masterclass focusses on the complex commercial contracts produced by clients. It will help engineers analyse the commercial issues, possible implications, and risks to confidently formulate new negotiating strategies. Group exercises will utilise actual client contracts and devise practical responses.
This popular one-day course will give you a practical understanding of the essentials of contractual relationships. It demystifies the language used, explains the concepts and provides a knowledge base to avoid common pitfalls of engineering and construction contracts.
This course introduces key concepts in vibration serviceability of building floors. Techniques for analysis, design and mitigation for satisfactory vibration performance are outlined, as well as their potential impact on sustainability of floor construction.
This two-day course extends the principles developed in the Understanding structural behaviour course. It covers more complex real structures and failures; and the important skills of approximate analysis for checking computational output and member sizing.
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 course is designed to enable you to design structures with net zero emissions. Delivered as a series of interactive online sessions across five weeks.
This half-day online course provides a theoretical framework for rapid problem-solving concept calculations.
