There are a lot of headlines about how coding is the future, yet we rarely discuss how computer science has a very real impact on the built environment. Desktop computing, CAD software, and other tools have set off a revolution in structural engineering. The Structural Engineering & Analysis Bootcamp Bundle will show you how these tools are changing how we build, and advance your engineering career.

The 12 courses in this bundle explore how different software suites are used in concrete and steel architecture and construction to test designs, meet code requirements, and ensure safety while speeding up the design process by combining it with the necessary safety analysis. The courses are taught by professional civil engineer Saifur Rahman and Nouman Azam, an associate professor in computer science, who opens the bundle with a course on mathematics software MATLAB and how it can automate repetitive tasks for engineers.

From there, Rahman uses his experience in the field to teach a crash course in AutoCAD’s 2D and 3D features to give you the basics of virtual engineering, before moving into AutoDesk’s engineering software tools, including Advance Steel; Revit, the company’s building information modeling (BIM) environment; and Robot, which performs structural load analysis and ensures a design complies with local, state, and national codes.

Next, you’ll explore Tekla Structural Designer. This software combines both the analysis and the design into one integrated whole, regardless of the material used, with a course each on steel and concrete. The boot camp closes by looking at engineering software ETABS and some other structural analysis tools civil engineers should be familiar with. Whether you’re seeking to boost your career or want to add this software to your civil engineering toolkit, you’ll quickly get up to speed.


Each course in this bundle costs $200 each, but you can purchase all 12 now and get the entire bundle for just $19.99.

Prices subject to change.
