The structural design minor will broaden the learning experiences and professional opportunities of students in majors outside of civil engineering technology by creating a focus in structural design and analysis of steel and concrete structure. It will also introduce related design codes. This minor is designed to most readily accommodate students majoring in mechanical engineering technology or mechanical engineering. This minor is closed to students majoring in civil engineering technology.
CVET-230 Elementary Structures
CVET-330 Structural Analysis and Dynamics
CVET-431 Structural Design–Steel
CVET-432 Structural Design–Reinforced Concrete
Elective—Choose one of the following:
CVET-433 Structural Timber Design
CVET-434 Design of Highway Bridges
CVET-435 Pre-stressed Concrete
CVET-436 Masonry Structures

Quarter Curriculum - For Reference Only
Effective fall 2013, RIT will convert its academic calendar from quarters to semesters. The following content has been made available as reference only. Currently matriculated students who began their academic programs in quarters should consult their academic adviser for guidance and course selection.
The minor focuses on structural design and the analysis of steel, concrete, and wood. The minor also explores building codes as they relate to design.
Students from outside the civil engineering technology program with majors in mechanical engineering technology or mechanical engineering would benefit from the minor. The minor is not limited to students in these fields of study, but there are some technical prerequisite courses.
