Integrated Project in Structural Engineering

Course Description:

Integrated structural design of a Civil Engineering structure by a group of 5 students. The subject will be selected by the students from a reservoir of subjects offered by the teachers. It will be supervised by an academic staff member through weekly meetings that substitute the courses. The students shall make a layout of the structure, built a numerical model in an appropriate software, run the analysis, design the structural elements, make structural drawings, submit a design report and make an oral presentation.
