Structural Design Course

Course fee: 50,000/-

Duration: 6 months

The technical standards for the design of structures is a huge subject. We teach the students on the fundamentals of building structures, steel structures, concrete structures and foundation structures.

This course teaches the students on designing and construction the high quality concrete structures. It covers all the aspects of construction such as feasibility studies, site preparation, designing and blueprints preparation. We also teach the students on the procurement of construction materials. In this course; the student also learns on the concrete mixture proportions, concrete workmanship, joints construction, load transfer design and curing. This is a six months program with an internship.
