    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    she can't​ teach, you have to learn the materials by yourself.

    Course highlights:

    Structural Concepts. This introductory course focuses on structure in architectural design. It investigates a variety of typical structural elements, namely: columns, beams, trusses, arches, and cables operating in compression, tension, bending, or torsion to achieve structural equilibrium. This theme is expanded further through the application of these elements to form a structural system, with an overview of one- and two-way spanning systems, and of load transfer through the structural system. Optimal selection of structural systems and reasons for structural failure are reviewed.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend all the classes. If you miss one, you are on your own. Clarify the group project topic before doing it;​ she is very disorganized. Try to only pick fundamental concepts like, buckling and tension. The final exam is super hard so be prepared.
