Learning Objective

STAAD stands for Structural Analysis and Design. STAAD Pro is a structural analysis and design program used for steel, concrete, aluminium, and cold-formed steel design of virtually any structure including culverts, petrochemical plants, tunnels, bridges, etc. It is used for 3D model generation, analysis and multi-material design.

The course objective is to train the students in Structural Modelling, Designing and Analysis, Integrated Design and Finite Element Analysis.

The course is designed to offer students and professionals all the essentials to learn and use the STAAD.Pro Software. The enrolled candidates will learn to master the application and will be empowered to deliver high-quality products and services and will be able to implement their designing and analysing techniques very efficiently.
