This course entitled "ETABS: Essential Course" is a structural analysis and structural design course for civil engineering students and working professionals.

This course teaches you all the essential things you need for designing an RCC building. The course is designed in such a way that the student need not have any prior experience with the software. The course starts at the level of beginners, with the basic creation of properties, modeling, and load application. It's a basic course that will help you get familiar with all the tools required to design a building. This free course can be used by civil engineering and structural engineering students. The biggest plus point of Etabs is the representation of the analyzed results with graphs, and colors. This way of result representation is way better than Staad pro or sap2000. This plus point of Etabs helps us design the structures faster. This course is a part of the main course titled "ETABS: Master Structural Analysis & Design of RCC Buildings."
