Courses under this program:
Course 1: Design of Steel-Concrete Composite Structures
Learn fundamental concepts and applications of steel-concrete composite structures including composite beams, columns, and walls.
Course 2: Steel Beam and Plate Girder Design
Learn fundamental concepts and applications of welded built-up steel plate girders including proportioning, flexural and shear strength, and local and global stability.
Course 3: Connections in Steel Structures
Understand steel connection behavior and explore connections with eccentricities, concentrated forces, and moments.
Course 4: Fundamentals of Prestressed Concrete
Learn the fundamentals of prestressed concrete design and the mechanics of how prestressed materials work under load. The prestressing mechanism provides strength for tensile forces when the material is in service; a common example of use of prestressed concrete is in parking garages.
Course 5: Pretensioned Structures
Learn the essentials of design of pretensioned concrete structures. A common design application is in a wide range of building and dam structures where improved performance of prestressed concrete can allow for longer spans of material.
Course 6: Post-Tensioned Structures
Learn the essentials of design of post-tensioned concrete structures for use in concrete slabs or in preventing cracks and leakage in concrete water tanks.
