Steel Design IThe course emphasizes a theoretical understanding of fundamental concepts in analysis and design of steel structures. The focus of the course is on the torsional behavior of the steel members, beams without lateral bracing, beamcolumn elements, builtup sections, and different types of steel connections.

Mechanics of MaterialsIn this course we will build on the knowledge gained in Statics to determine the internal forces in structures due to applied external loads. We will then see how these internal forces are distributed in terms of stresses. The emphasis of this course will be on understanding how solid bodies deform when subjected to these internal forces, and thus a key objective is to understand the mechanical behavior of materials. Emphasis will be on understanding basic concepts and applying them to solve engineering problems. Systematic problem solving methods will be stressed where student must first plan the solution and at the end, review the solution for reasonableness. The concepts learned in this course are important in future engineering studies and in practice because many of the equations in engineering design codes are based on fundamental concepts that will be covered in this course. 
DynamicsMechanics is a branch of the physical sciences that is concerned with the state of rest or motion of bodies subjected to the action of forces. Engineering mechanics is divided into two areas of study, namely, statics and dynamics. Statics is concerned with the equilibrium of a body that is either at rest or moves with constant velocity. Here we will consider dynamics, which deals with the accelerated motion of a body. The subject of dynamics will be presented in two parts: kinematics, which treats only the geometric aspects of the motion, and kinetics, which is the analysis of the forces causing the motion. To develop these principles, the dynamics of a particle will be discussed first, followed by topics in rigidbody dynamics in two and then three dimensions. 
Seismic design of structuresIntroduction to basic concepts of seismic design of steel and concrete structures based on LoadingSpecifying loads is one of the most important factors in designing a structure, yet very little time is spent explaining to students how the loads are determined. In many undergraduate design courses, the loads are presented as a “Given”, with little to no information provided as to where the value came from. The primary objective of this course is to provide familiarize students with ASCE 7, so that they are able to correctly interpret the code and apply it in situations outside those explicit Concrete Design ProjectThe primary objective of the course is to extend the student’s knowledge and proficiency in analysis and design of reinforced concrete structures. To accomplish this objective, the course will examine topics related to the behavior of beams, columns, oneway slabs, structural walls and foundations (as time permits). Current methods for design of these elements under axial, flexural and shear forces will be examined. Practical design problems will be solved as homework assignments.
