CIV E 374 - Structural Design I

Introduction to limit states design, common framing systems, design loads, and load path evaluation. Behaviour and design of steel members and connections. Prerequisite: CIV E 372.

CIV E 479 - Structural Design III

Detailed design of a structure which requires students, working in teams, to exercise creativity, to make design assumptions and to complete the structural design based on a synthesis of technical knowledge acquired in this and other structural engineering courses. Course lectures focus on seismic load calculation; design of concrete, reinforced masonry and timber elements; bridge design; and advanced structural steel design. Prerequisite: CIV E 474. Note: Restricted to fourth-year traditional and fifth-year co-op engineering students.
