|Summary||Structural Engineering Design Project 5 gives students experience of a major design project within a realistic commercial environment. Students work as part of a team to produce a feasible bridge design, subject to time and cost constraints. The project draws together analysis, design, planning and evaluation skills learnt throughout the students' degree programme. Creative thinking, team working, detailed analysis and iterative design skills are developed during the project.
