Structural Engineering 3-4

Students play the role of both architects and engineers as they design and construct bridges and buildings of all sizes in this civil engineering-themed course.

Lessons center on multiple methods for supporting elements of structures, commonly used construction materials, safety testing, planning ahead for natural disasters, and examples of modern and ancient feats of civil engineering.

This course features a large number of hands-on student projects such as competitions to optimize the capacity and cost of bridges and towers, earthquake simulations, waterproofing a roof, building a dam, and constructing a hydraulic bridge.
