This unit is a basic introduction to structural design that develops students understanding of the design process and equips students to prepare simple designs under supervision of a professional engineer. It builds on structural analysis skills developed in Applied Structural Analysis. The unit presents the structural properties of steel and concrete. Students design simple reinforced concrete and steel members and structural connections to meet strength and serviceability requirements and provide clear documentation of their analysis and design. Students are required to communicate,
work and learn, both individually and in teams in a professional manner. Distance education (FLEX) students will be required to have access to a computer, and make frequent use of the Internet.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified
as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa,
must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study
period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining
at least an 80% attendance record).
This unit has a website, within the Moodle system, which is available two weeks before the start of term. It is important that you visit your Moodle site throughout the term.
