The Engineering Structures Around Us

The study of engineering structures around us.

A brief summary

Our course is broken up into six concepts. Each one of these correspond to a week. Each one of our concepts has the same basic structure. Each concept will contain a concept guide. You can use this to choose your path through the concept. We have the foundation track, which usually will take an hour or so,and then we have a certificate track, which takes one to three,maybe four hours depending on the project that we have you building.
