STAAD Pro is an analysis and design software package for structural engineering, used in performing the analysis and design of a wide variety of types of structures. This implies that it addresses all aspects of structural engineering including model development, verification, analysis, design and review of results. It includes advanced dynamic analysis and push over analysis for wind load and earthquake load.

Students are introduced to the concepts of structure modelling, analysis, design and documentation. This course offers hands-on exercises representing real-world structural design scenarios.
