    • Course Description:
    • ( Exchange Programme )
    • This is a selective course for undergraduate students in civil engineering, the objective is to educate students how to distinguish Level I and Level II from current foreign design codes and, based on structural reliability theory, how to exchange relative parameters from different Levels. It will benefit students to take part in foreign design and construction projects in future.
