AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction), NSBA (National Steel Bridge Alliance), and the Purdue S-BRITE Center have partnered to offer a Steel Bridge Design night school program. The program is offered on-line similar to other AISC night schools.

The series begins with an introduction to bridge engineering and will then address AASHTO bridge design standards including bridge loading. The specifics of steel in bridge construction will be explored including design and fabrication of steel. More advanced topics such as plate girder design, effects of curvature and skew, and fatigue and fracture design will also be covered. Written and presented by a group of experts in the steel bridge industry, this course not only suits the needs of engineers and engineering students without a bridge design background, but it also serves as a refresher course for experienced bridge designers. The speakers are literally a "Who's Who" in the world of steel bridge engineering and include several Committee 15 members. To be able to participate in lectures given by these individuals is an exceptional opportunity.

The course materials are targeted toward undergraduate, graduate students, EITs, and working professionals who have only been practicing a few years, but also more seasoned engineers will also benefit. We have negotiated a special rate for students and encourage those of you interested in a career in bridge engineering to consider participating.  Further, employers have also endorsed these courses and will recognize the value of a student who has successfully completed the Night School when listed on a resume. Please see the attached flyer and website below for more information.
