The most important methods of  analysis and design of engineering structures are presented, together with their modelling, and the applied approximations. It is  shown how high school statics (and math) can be applied to engineering structures. The understanding of the behaviour of structures is emphasized.

Strength of materials is a compulsory engineering subject  for second year students in architecture. The goals of the subject are to show how to
- determine the deformations of load-bearing structures
- find the internal forces of statically indeterminate structures.
In addition to theoretical methods, we also show examples in structural engineering.

Basic conceptual and computational design methods of load-bearing structures are discussed for reinforced concrete-, steel-, timber and masonry buildings.
The main goal is to gain knowledge about structural design problems and principles of structural design in order to understand how and why the load-bearing structure influences the work of an architect.

The subject introduces the special load-bearing structures, such as large span, tall and spatial structures. We introduce the trusses, box-beams, wall-beams and arches as large span structures. We show the static behavior of tall buildings: the concept of the vertical and horizontal load-bearing structures. The behavior of spatial structures is the main topic of the semester. We introduce the RC shells, the brick-shells, the cable and textile membranes, space-trusses, grid shells

The subjct introduces students into the way of design of approximate dimensions, joints and structural solutions of reinforced concrete structures. Invited lecturers expose some of the most significant recent investments in reinforced concrete in Hungary. The aim of the course is to develop the ability of students - on the basis of EUROCODE 2 - to adopt architectural dimensions and to evaluate the effect of the chosen architectural lay-out onto the structural solution.

The architecture likes the landmark-bridges, it is very popular nowadays. In contrast the design and statics together play an important role (and they help each other) in the case of progressive structures so we would like to emphasize the importance of advanced structures. Our aim is to pick up the essential technical term of bridge building, to select and apply the correct structures and finally to have an overview of new structural solutions.
