This course will address emerging topics in the field of structural engineering that are relevant in professional practice. The course is primarily intended for students who are either practicing structural engineers or future practicing structural engineers, but it also covers topics that could lead into research ideas for those graduate students who may be seeking a career in the academia. Through lectures, learning activities and assignments, this course takes a deep dive into a selection of topics with a focus on their application in real structural engineering projects. Examples include Design of Composite Members, Structural Stability, Shape Memory Alloys and other Innovative Materials, Special/prequalified and Proprietary Lateral Load Resisting Systems, Sustainability in Structural Designs, Welded Connections, Fracture Mechanics in Structures, Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Systems for Strengthening of Reinforced Concrete Structures, Nondestructive Evaluation of Structures, and Secure Structural Design.
