Steel Construction Course Overview
This steel construction course aims to prepare structural engineers for careers in a vast international construction market. Steel structures account for over 60% of the multi-storey building market and 95% of single-storey structures in the UK. In this country we are world leaders in steel construction, but the use of steel is growing in other parts of the world, leading to a buoyant career market. A key module in this course is Structural Analysis and Design for Fire, which gives you the opportunity to learn about this new and vital development in steel construction.
