Modules Covered over 2 Years
Theory Modules Software Modules

Module 1: Associate theory of structures, structural behaviour, mechanical properties and resistances of connectors and structural steelwork elements as well as regulations, codes, standards and drawing office practices with the preparation of detail drawings of connections and load bearing elements used in the fabrication and assembly of steel structures 

Module 2: Collect, analyse and critically evaluate engineering requirements for the detailing of connections and load bearing elements to ensure safe and economical connections and load bearing elements for structural steelwork assemblies 

Module 3: Organise and manage one's self and one's activities in the production of structural steelwork detail drawings to ensure the accurate measurement and placement of individual assemblies on drawing layouts in accordance with drawing office practice and specifications. 

Module 4: Communicate effectively between structural steel drawing office personnel, workshop and site personnel as well as associated engineering personnel when preparing and issuing detail drawings. 

Module 5: Communicate with clientele when compiling estimates and quotations for structural steelwork projects based on the standard system of measurement of building work for the steel construction industry thereby ensuring that accurate estimates are compiled and quotations produced from standard contract documentation are in accordance with best practice standards. 

Module 6: Identify and solve problems when preparing details of structural steelwork connections and load bearing elements to ensure accurate calculations and workshop drawings are produced in accordance with engineer's requirements and contract specifications. 

Module 7: Use science and technology associated with connection design and draughting practice to produce detail drawings of structural steelwork assemblies and arrangement drawings. 

Module 8: Use advanced 3D computer modelling science and technology to produce detail drawings and related data for the fabrication of commercial and industrial structural steel buildings. 

Module 9: Integrate the processes and sequences associated with the preparation and production of structural steelwork detail drawings with the fabricating workshop and site planning functions and evaluate the combined impact of these processes on the time and cost of producing quality products within contract specifications and programme. 

Module 10: Demonstrate an understanding of the world as a set of related systems by contributing to the implementation of enhanced quality control processes from the preparation of detail drawings to the fabrication stage and through to the on-site erection of structural steelwork assemblies including handover of completed steel structures.
