Course Overview

ETABS (Extended Three-dimensional Analysis of Building Systems) is a popular structural engineering software used to design and analyze buildings, bridges, and other structures. An ETABS course can help students and professionals learn how to use this software to model, analyze, and design complex structures. The course covers topics such as modeling techniques, structural analysis, design optimization, and post-processing of results. Students will also learn about earthquake-resistant design, lateral force analysis, and foundation design. The course is suitable for civil engineers, architects, and students interested in building design and analysis. ETABS is widely used in the construction industry, and learning how to use it can enhance one’s career prospects and help design efficient and safe structures.
