Course Studies in Engineering in Europe 2017. Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) Chartered Membership (CM) Examination Preparation Class - part-time There is a significant difference between a junior engineer who can carry out the design of individual structural elements and a senior engineer who can identify engineering problems and solve them with viable structural solutions within the scope of a design brief, taking account of structural stability, durability, aesthetics and cost. One of the purposes of this course is to assist junior engineers in their journey to become senior engineers. The course is open to all structural engineers wanting to develop their skills to include structural scheme design. It is assumed that all engineers enrolling on the course have a good working knowledge of design of the primary structural materials. The course includes manual methods of analysis and manual design calculations. It also encourages the use of hand drawn conceptual design sketches and sketch details. Throughout the course, use will be made of past questions from the IStructE CM Exam in tutorials to allow engineers to practice new techniques learnt on the course. There will be a day long mock exam where candidates will be given the opportunity under exam conditions to take a recent exam (likely to be last year’s exam). Opportunity will later be given for peer marking and discussion of the mock exam scripts (or other scripts brought to the session). Marks will not be given by the session leaders and the mock exam is not compulsory. The course includes issues such as exam technique, time management and mark allocation as well as opportunities for coaching using tutorials. In one session, we will invite one or two engineers who sat and passed the examination recently to speak on their experience of the examination, give their suggestions for suitable preparation strategies and answer some of the questions that trouble candidates. Two of the sessions are earmarked for bridge design; however the following topics are excluded from the course: offshore engineering, silos, chimneys, water towers and seismic/dynamic problems. Finally, as the course is exercise and tutorial based, those candidates who put the most effort into their contributions will gain the most from the course. “You get out what you put in.” Entry requirements Applicants should hold BSc (Hons) or BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering or Structural Engineering and be in the process of completing the IStructE’s Professional Review Interview.
