RC Structural Engineering with Protastructure


A college degree is no longer sufficient to enter the job market with confidence, and employers are now considering your ability to deliver a project more than academic papers. Traditional curriculums are obsolete in comparison to what is now trending in the job market.

At Nziza, we are working to change that; our courses are designed to provide you with information and practical skills that will astound employers. We don't teach irrelevant theories; instead, we mix practical theories and understandings required for project delivery and show you how to bring them to life with dedicated software technology.

Structural engineering is a subfield of civil engineering concerned with the design of man-made structures. Structural engineers design the bones and muscles of structures, and they must comprehend the rigidity, stability, and strength of both building and non-building structures. 

To do so, engineers must learn powerful structural technologies that allow them to study a building's efficiency under a variety of conditions. As traditional colleges in this sector focus on theories, histories, and manual calculations, it has become critical for students and professionals to join professional training programs that are designed to connect what they have learned in college with how jobs are done in the market and Nziza makes a difference on that point.

This training course is only for civil and structural engineers who want to learn about modern design technology for Building Information Modelling in the structural engineering field. Using Protastructure, we will go deeply into the design and analysis of reinforced concrete building structures, demonstrating how structural engineering is both a scientific field and a logical form.

This course will include practical exercises and assignments that will lead to a certificate of competency. Our ultimate goal is to enable you to deliver a technical design and analysis of any type of building structure. The entire course has been explained and developed using both British (BS8110) and Eurocode standards.

As this course is certified by the Turkish Protasoftware world’s headquarters, all trainees who join and successfully finish it will be issued a Prota certificate as professional structural designers and analysts. Keep in mind that this course will be supplemented by a number of free webinars and online training events designed to keep our trainees sharp and up-to-date as technology changes in the job market.

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 RC Structural design, and I feel more confident applying what I've learned in my personal and professional life. 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.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the software course you tutored. The explanations, practical examples are clear and engaging teaching style made the course more understandable however personal effort is needed to sharpen what leant and exploration design other construction features. I really appreciate the effort you are putting into creating a encouraging environment for all of us to learn new skills and valuable contribution in Rwandan Construction sector. I would also advise to incorporate in prota software Rwandan standards whereby local materials properties can be recognized. Among the important design features, you offered along the course I Would suggest if may add masonry design which is frequently used for different structural purpose for instance stone masonry retaining wall. The skills I acquired during this course have already made a difference in my work. From debugging techniques to software design principles, I feel more confident in my abilities. Thank you for sharing your expertise and inspiring many to continue learning. Best regards ,Eng.H Pacifique
