The curriculum of the course, "Steel Structures" contains:
Building structure - definition according to Eurocodes (EC). Types of steels. Range of steel products for steel constructions. Basics of the method in border states, according to EC. Bearing capacity of cross sections and steel members. Connections and joints - welded, bolted and riveted. Beams and beam structures. Columns - types, construction and dimensioning. Trusses - types, construction and dimensioning. Single-storey frame structures - types. Construction of roof and wall falsework. Construction of overhead lighting. Single-storey industrial buildings. Types of cranes and support crane structures. Spatial strengthening of planar structures of buildings - with and without cranes and of a different structure of the structural elements. The project on Steel Structures is a project of the steel supporting structure of one-storey industrial building without cranes or overhead lighting. The columns are solid, whereas the beams are truss-like.  A compositional decision of the construction is made - plans, sections and perspective drawings so as to develop the system for its spatial strengthening.

The following construction elements are to be given dimensions – „П”- shaped hot rolled purlin – profile and a roof truss.
