About the Course
STAAD. PRO is a new tool for Civil Engineering Students which is in huge demand now a days. STAAD.PRO is a structural analysis and design program with applications primarily in the building and Real-estate industry- like commercial buildings, bridges and highway structures, industrial structures, chemical plant structures, dams, Turbine foundations, culverts, other embedded structures etc.
Real Estate business is one of the profitable sectors of the market and there are huge no of scopes and opportunities for BTECH Civil Engineering students who want to pursue their career as a Structural Designer or Design Engineer. Leading builders and colonizers are investing hugely in the real estate business to get maximum profit.
There is a growing demand for well-skilled civil Engineering professionals and in the near future the demand will increase more. Already the sector is booming. The companies are looking for competent, skilled and technically strong Civil engineering professionals but somehow the skills and techniques that industries expect from the candidates are either lacking or not up to the mark as per the standards of the industry. The blame has to be given to the course curriculum of the colleges and institutions that only emphasizes on the theoretical learning and lacks in imparting practical and technical knowledge to the students.
Ample no of jobs are available in the Real Estate sector but the students are not able to grab the jobs and crack the interview because of lack of lack of technical know-how. For this reason the students can take help of specialized Training programs in leading training companies designed for Civil Students only. STAAD. PRO is one of the most effective tools that helps a lot in shaping a career in Civil and students after going through a training program will become much more technically sound and it will also increase their confidence level.
The best time for undergoing training program in STAAD. PRO is during the summer or winter vacation breaks. Thus Civil students can get themselves trained on STAAD. PRO or they can join STAAD.PRO training programs by means of Training organizations. Very few training companies are providing training in STAAD. PRO technology because finding a suitable trainer in STAAD. PRO is very difficult task. The reason is most of the well-skilled STAAD. PRO Professionals are working in Civil Engineering firms and Real-Estate Industries.
So before joining training program students must check the company and trainer profile. They should do a comprehensive research before joining a Training organization. They should try to take valuable inputs from the candidates who have already done their training from the company previously. Students have no need to waste their academic time for these training programs as they get easily trained during the semester or vacation breaks. The number of seats for this STAAD. PRO training programs are very limited. So Students must get enrolled for the STAAD. PRO Training Programs without wasting much time if they want to build a fruitful career as a Civil professional.

Key TakeawaysSTAAD Pro is a general purpose program for performing the analysis and design of a wide variety of types of structures. STAAD Pro is an analysis and design software package for structural engineering. If you have developed the interest to learn STAAD Pro, lucky you because youâ€™ve just made the right choice. All you have to do is to enroll for STAAD Pro classes in an IT firm, where you will be taught very well. Today in our article, we shall be focusing on the advantages/uses of learning STAAD Pro and listed below are some of the advantages of learning STAAD Pro
VERY EASY TO LEARN
It has an Extremely Flexible Modeling Environment, which has now made it very easy for beginners to learn it effectively within a short period of time. Also its corporation has also provided a step by step movie tutorial and hundreds of examples and verification problems that will help beginners throughout the learning process. Online help is also provided with example and explanation.
It supports several steel, concrete and timber design codes.
Generation of loads: it has the capacity to generate loads based on the masses in the system and it involves the current code development. It also has engines for wheel loads, earthquake loads, etc.
Cleanup capability: its cleanup capability is also best with runtime to cleanup the mismatches.
Wide Application in Structural Engineering: it is a software for all types of structure and includes tools designed to aid solve specific structural engineering tasks. STAAD Pro works in conjunction with programs such as STAAD foundation, which allows foundations to be designed, STAAD. offshore, which allows for design of offshore structures, RAM Concept, for concrete slab design including post-tensioning, Bentley REBAR for reinforcing detailing, Bentley AutoPIPE, for calculation of pipe stresses, Structural Modeler for drawing production and BIM Solution, and RAM Connection, for steel connection design. Whether you're engineering bridges, plants, or pipes, STAAD Pro will streamline your efforts, ensuring success.
Concrete and steel design have been included into the software to help you optimize your design with full control of parameters such as deflection, reinforcement for your concrete columns, beams, slabs and shear walls and as a result of this, the stress of using one software to do modeling, another software for steel design and another one to design your concrete beams, slabs and foundations is wept out.
You can customize it to fit any design you need because of it in-built parametric library. In Users defined template can be design and add to your STAAD Pro library and with OPENSTAAD, and then your output model form Excel and MathCAD can be linked. Thus, when you change your design parameters, the Excel routine changes as well.
With it, you don't need to use multiple software programs to check the integrity of your structure under different conditions; you can also subject your structure to linear, dynamic, and even non-linear conditions.
With the knowledge of STAAD Pro, you can earn yourself great cash. If you properly develop your skill and execute best jobs, you clients and many others will look for you.
One other advantage of learning the software is that you have the privilege of becoming any of the following:
Structural engineers/ Structural engineering
Consulting engineers/engineering consultants
Departmental staff in a construction company, owner/operators, and government agencies
Offshore platform designer etc.
