Civil & Construction Engineering

Engineering Materials For Buildings And Bridges

  REF: CE54  DATES: 24 - 28 Jun 2019  (One Week)  VENUE: Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)-Grand Millenium Hotel


The goal of this course is to provide participants with an advanced understanding of the properties of traditional and emerging materials used in buildings and bridges. Upon completion of the course,


  • Recognize and understand the engineering properties of materials used in the construction of bridges and buildings
  • Select the appropriate material to achieve particular design goals
  • Understand the advantages, disadvantages and limitations of such materials
  • Make informed design decisions to select materials for enhancing the structural performance, serviceability and durability of buildings and bridges
  • Use such materials in optimal combination in hot and humid environments
  • Recognise the governing standards, performance criteria, and laboratory and field tests for characterizing such materials
