Description

SkyCiv Structural Engineering for Students: Structural Steel will either re-enforce topics you have learned in class or help you grasp new ones that aren't covered. One of the main goals of the course is to use real examples to help you bridge the gap from college coursework to the industry, as well as expose you to topics that aren't usually covered in undergraduate curriculum. If you have never been used structural engineering software, this course will give you a great idea of the ideal workflows used in practice through the use of the SkyCiv platform.

If you want to work alongside the examples in this course as well as the other courses, you can complete the majority of tasks with a SkyCiv Student Account, which you can sign up for directly from the SkyCiv website.

The main component of this course includes walking through the 3D modeling, loading, and analysis of a 3 dimensional warehouse structure, all with the SkyCiv software suite. At the end of the analysis phase of the project, there will be a “What’s Next?” section of lectures that will go through and expose you to steel connection design in accordance with AISC 360 using the Connection Design module. The features used in those lectures are not available with a SkyCiv Student account.

B.S. of Civil Engineering w/ Structural Emphasis grad from UW-Madison. After a couple of years working as a Structural Engineer-in-Training, I wanted to learn more about the software side of the industry. From there I was given an opportunity at my current workplace, SkyCiv Engineering, to use my industry knowledge to help bridge the gap between our software developers at the back end and the structural engineer at the front end.

My goal is to teach and inform undergraduate Civil or Structural Engineering students about fundamental principles in Structural Engineering through the use of a variety of media, including the SkyCiv software platform.

SkyCiv Structural Engineering for Students is a great series of courses because it will either re-enforce topics you have learned in class or help you grasp new ones that aren't covered. The goal of the course is to use real examples to help you bridge the gap from college coursework to the industry, as well as expose you to topics that aren't usually covered in undergraduate curriculum, such as concrete foundation and steel connection design.
