Course Overview

Bridges have always played a significant role in infrastructure. However, structural engineering and bridge design are yet to be fully considered from an artistic perspective. Therefore, The Art of Structural Engineering by Edx will help you understand engineering from a creative discipline and art’s point of view. 

Furthermore, The Art of Structural Engineering certification syllabus will focus on learning through some of the significant bridges and their examples, built during the industrial revolution. It also deep dives into the social and economic context of bridge design, especially touching upon the interplay between its form and forces. This introductory course includes basic mathematics which is easy to grasp and understand. 

Offered by the prestigious Princeton University through Edx, The Art of Structural Engineering online course’s educator will be Maria Garlock, the Civil and Environmental Engineering department’s Professor. The program is engaging, containing a sophisticated methodology that combines engineering and artistic elements in a subtle and well-organized manner.
