AE 3221 - Steel Design

4 lecture hours 0 lab hours 4 credits
Course Description
This course presents design of beams, composite beams, columns, beam-columns, tension members, bolted connections, and welded connections for strength and serviceability in accordance with American Institute of Steel Construction specifications. (prereq: AE 3201 ) (coreq: AE 3211 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
