Introduction to Structural Engineering

Structural engineering is an essential component of building design. The goal of this course is to familiarize architecture students with structural engineering principles, so that they can incorporate them into their design processes. This will enable them to see structural engineering as an integral part of the process, rather than something separate that occurs after the "design work" is done. From their unique perspective as architecture students, students will find ways to question and challenge structural engineering principles that an engineering student may not. Students will become familiar with the many concepts and considerations needed in order to be a better designer, architect, planner, engineer, or related professional.
