BCN 3431- Steel Design 2 Why Structural Design Courses? Anyone managing the construction process needs a  basic understanding of the engineer’s environment and  the basic understanding of how a structure behaves.   Constructors must be able to address a number of  technical questions at the project site including structural  issues that sometimes are not addressed by the design  professionals.  Since the safety of construction workers  as well as the strength and stability of structures during  the construction phase is of paramount importance,  construction mangers need this knowledge.
