Summary

Within the framework of the subject "Selected Topics from Steel and Timber Structures", students will be acquainted with selected advanced themes in the design of steel, glass and timber structures. The acquired knowledge and skills can be applied in engineering practice in solving complex structural problems in the field of structural statics and dynamics.
