Course content


STAAD. Pro®  is a comprehensive structural finite element analysis and design application that allows users to perform analysis on any structure exposed to static, dynamic, wind, earthquake, thermal, and moving loads. STAAD comes in different variations so you can choose what’s best for you. The STAAD. Pro® program is built specifically for the building systems. It is able to hold complex and large construction models as well as its configurations. The software includes robust tools with respect to modelling analysis and designing.  Many design code standards are incorporated into STAAD to make sure that the structural design complies with local regulations. It is widely used in infrastructure design like that of tunnels, bridges and culverts. This course is ideal for both structural engineers and also for those who wish to migrate to structural engineering.
