Simpson Develops Curriculum for Building Designer Educators
Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, has created curriculum resources for educators of students in structural or civil engineering, construction management and architecture. Resources include online courses, educational videos and Simpson Strong-Tie software and technology, along with relevant industry associations.
The assets can be used in a virtual or classroom setting, either by the educator alone or with the help of a Simpson Strong-Tie Outreach Coordinator. The company also has developed eLearning courses that include the necessary curriculum to teach the course.
“We have a long history of academic partnerships in research and development and student support, which includes our Strong-Tie Undergraduate Fellowship,” said CEO Karen Colonias. “We’re happy to expand our resources for the colleges and universities that are educating the next generation of construction leaders.”
