Last modified: 22 May 2019 17:07


Course Overview

A combination of hands on design and analysis workshops and lectures provide students with an opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills of analysing and designing a variety of lightweight structures such as lightweight steel frame, low-carbon & lightweight concrete structures, space structures, automotive chassis, crash resisting elements, airframes, fixed and rotary wings and wind turbine blades. A coursework assignment will assess all of the intended learning outcomes. This assignment is carefully designed to include a wide range of lightweight structures and components design cases from different engineering sectors. Students will select a design case relevant to their field of study
