This two day training course delivers a comprehensive and detailed review of the use and application of Eurocode 3 for the design of steel building structures. It considers all the key aspects of structural steel design including structural behaviour, materials, structural components and joints.

For each aspect Eurocode design concepts are explained and discussed in detail including departure from existing practice (BS 5950). The learning is reinforced through extensive worked examples and tutorials, offering extended practical guidance, advice and opinion on the application of the Eurocodes for the practising designer.

All attending delegates receive a complimentary copy of Designer's Guide to EN1993-1-1 Eurocode 3: Design of Steel Structures to assist their study.



Training courses on set dates, in ICE Training venues across the country. Suitable for those looking to attend a training course and share knowledge and practical experiences with like-minded others in an interactive learning environment.


Bespoke training programmes. These are delivered by our tutors at a time, in a location and based on a curriculum completely tailored to your needs. Ideal for organisations that have several employees wishing to take training in the same subject area, and/or have organisation-specific ideas for learning and development.
