    This unit promotes the development of underpinning design skills appropriate to para-professional participation in the design of structural engineering elements such as foundations, columns, walls, beams, suspended slabs and staircases as part of an engineering design team. Students will develop expertise in the documentation of such projects to a professional level of presentation using CAD software in accordance with Australian Standards.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Describe and discuss the principles of static equilibrium and elastic response;

    2. Apply those principles to the construction and design of simple structural elements;

    3. Identify general arrangements and relate to detailed drawings of structural elements in accordance with current standards; and

    4. Apply written communication skills in a professional and academic context.
