Learning Objective

ETABS Training is designed to help the fresher as well as experienced Civil Engineers (Masters/Degree/Diploma) and architect who are engaged in multi-story building analysis and designing and it is also appropriate for those who work for various range of applications related to mathematical model analysis of buildings such as interior design, architectural, landscape architecture etc.It is the advanced level software used for analysis and designing of building structures.
The course aims to offer comprehensive knowledge on the ETABS software and its applications. The course will help the candidates to acquire in-depth details about the different procedures and simplified analysis aspects of the design models. The certification converts a candidate into an expert that is ready to work in the civil design industry. ETABS is the most advanced and extensively used Software which will allow the learner to learn and understand the modern designing methods and techniques which will be used in the coming future in their career.
