10 CFU - 1° Semester

**Structural Engineering**The aim of the course is to provide the student with the theoretical knowledge and application skills needed for the design of steel and concrete structures. First, a geometric model will be defined to represent the structure. Second, the internal forces will be determined. Finally, the cross-section of the members will be verified.

**Design of Structures**The aim of the course is to provide the student with the practical knowledge and skills needed for the design of reinforced concrete and steel structures. First, a geometric model will be defined to represent the structure. Second, the internal forces will be determined. Finally, the cross-section of the members will be verified.
