Teaching Structural Design in Civil Engineering Technology.
This paper is a description of a college course in structural design, which in this case serves as the capstone of the program in Civil Engineering Technology at the College of Staten Island (New York). Fourteen weeks of class lecture topics, activities, and assignments are delineated. Coverage includes building codes, loads calculation, structural behavior, and design of beams and columns. The course description also provides the purposes and requirements of a term project in structural design. The course received highly positive evaluations from participants, many of whom remarked on the success of course materials and the term project progressing in parallel throughout the semester. (BEW)
