Design of Steel Structures with Protasteel


To participate in this professional course, you must have a solid practical understanding of Protastructure, the software we will use for structural modeling. Participants in this program will learn how to model any problem, assign correct design parameters, and identify the ideal steel section sizes using Protastructure and the world's most famous structural design tools.

Steel structures are commonly employed in modern buildings because of their strength, versatility, and cost-effectiveness. Steel structure design, on the other hand, necessitates a thorough understanding of complicated engineering principles as well as adherence to severe design requirements. We will look at how ProtaSteel software may dramatically improve your design capabilities, allowing you to develop optimized and structurally sound steel structures.

The training will also provide participants with in-depth knowledge of how to create automatic steel connections on structural members loaded into Protasteel. Stop battling and instead invest in high-performance structural software that automates your engineering tasks, from steel structural modeling to construction or fabrication document creation.

This comprehensive training program is intended for both experienced engineers and recent civil/structural engineering graduates who want to improve their skills and competence in steel structure design. By the end of this course, you will have gained the knowledge and practical experience required to properly use ProtaSteel software and design efficient and reliable steel structures. It is ready to refer to the entire step-by-step process and procedures involved in constructing a steel warehouse and two-story residential projects.

This course is accredited by Turkish Protasoftware, which implies that all trainees who enroll and successfully complete it will receive a Prota certificate as professional steel structural engineers. What exactly are you waiting for? Join the world's leading construction skills of the twenty-first century.

The lessons were easy to follow, The platform's interface was intuitive, making the learning process smooth. The course significantly improved my skills, and I highly recommend it for anyone looking to enhance their design abilities.

Gorki CHARITE - Tue, 06-Feb-2024

The Protasteel course is carefully planned, with the main element being the incomparable live technical support provided by Nziza Global Platform. I strongly suggest this course to anyone looking for the best steel design training available.

I want to express my gratitude for the effort and dedication you put into creating this course. It has truly expanded my knowledge and skills in Steel Structural design, and I feel more confident applying what I've learned in my personal and professional life( Also I thanks Charite for the support provided when it was necessary). However, I did notice that in some sections, the pace of the course felt a bit rushed, particularly when covering more complex topics It would have been helpful to have more opportunities for support to reinforce my understanding of these concepts especial during final project period.
