Course Objective

This is an advanced course using ETABS to perform linear and nonlinear analysis for detailed design for Building Structure.

Our limited registration and small class size promote valuable interactions with the instructor, and hands-on exercises are closely guided.

Pre-requisite needed: ETABS Hands-On Training I (S111E) or ETABS Hands-on Training (S110E).
