Demonstration of Earthquake Engineering Course
Welcome to this course on earthquake engineering. This is the first course in a series being developed by the Quake Centre at the University of Canterbury. The purpose of the whole programme is:
- To review the earthquake engineering knowledge and skills that you learnt through your degree, and in the early parts of your career.
- To help you to know how to apply these skills and knowledge.
- To highlight areas of practice that require careful thought, in which you cannot always rely upon the Code to provide solutions.
You are about to embark on a high quality, technically-sound course, developed by a practising engineer with a strong academic research background. There has also been input from other senior practising engineers and top level academics. In this first course, you have the opportunity to review the fundamentals of earthquake engineering and confirm a solid foundation of knowledge, before you move on to other topics in the programme.
