Structural and Building Technology


Course code CIV2502

Design and construction personnel in all areas of employment are likely to be involved in building design and construction. This includes concrete, structural steel and timber design and construction detailing.

This course therefore seeks to introduce the student to these commonly encountered areas of structural engineering and building technology.

The course provides a broad overview of current building construction practice, embracing the structural, architectural and building services aspects.

There is also a need to convey details via sketches and drawings as a necessary part of achieving a final result in engineering design.
