Learning outcomes: 

Undergraduate University Study of Civil Engineering
Introduction to Timber Structures
– a student will be able to:
- analyse and critically discuss the technology and production techniques of timber members and wood-based products;
- control and lead the onsite-processes regarding erection and construction of timber-based buildings;
- conduct design, load bearing capacity and stability checks of timber members according to limit state method;
- design timber connections according to limit state method and conduct structural detailing.

Introduction to Metal Structures - a student will be able to:
- conduct proper selection of steel alloy, bolt and any additional material type for the creation of steel-based load bearing structure;
- develop a control programme for the steel material;
- select the proper anticorrosive protection system;
- conduct design of simple steel structures (and its load bearing members and connections);
- create shop drawings and documentation.
