In-house Course

This course can be delivered in the offices of a company to a group of up to 16 engineers. It is currently not available as a public course.


Eurocode 2 is the current design standard for structural concrete. This course will introduce the code and explain how to apply it for simple elements in building structures. Practical tutorials allow delegates to understand how to design elements using Eurocode 2.

Aims & Objectives

On completion of this course delegates will have a knowledge of the principles of Eurocode 2 and be able to apply them to elements in a building structure.

After this course delegates will:

  • Have an appreciation of the content of Eurocode 2 for building structures
  • Know how to apply Eurocode 2 to:
