About SteelClass

SteelClass is an online series of videos that will teach you how to design structural steel members and connections. The course is broken up into over thirty lessons, taken from an actual senior-level engineering course taught at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. The class focuses on the basics of steel design in accordance with the latest requirements of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC.) The class refers to the textbook, “Structural Steel Design” by McCormac (4th Edition) and the AISC Manual of Steel Construction (13th Edition.) Practical design examples are given in the videos, as well as easy-to-understand explanations of the theory behind the design.

SteelClass will teach you the basics of structural steel whether you are a student, an engineer, a steel fabricator, a contractor, an architect, or….anyone! If you need to know about steel design, SteelClass gives you the easiest and most convenient way to learn, all from the comfort of your computer.

We’ve put together a course that’s easy to follow. If you can watch the videos from your computer, then you’re qualified. You simply watch the video classes online, just like you’re in an actual class. You can also pick and choose which subjects you want to learn about and watch those videos. You have total freedom to learn at your own pace.

  • Are you a mechanical engineer who needs to understand steel design but you don’t want to go back to school? SteelClass is perfect for you!

  • Are you an architect that needs to be able to design simple steel structures but need some basic instruction? Or maybe you are studying to pass the Architectural Registration Exam (ARE) and need some help understanding steel design. SteelClass will get you there!

  • Are you a civil or structural engineer that needs a refresher on steel design, especially using the latest ASD and LRFD design methods? SteelClass is a great refresher for practicing engineers!

  • Do you need continuing education or professional development hours (PDH’s) to maintain your license? SteelClass provides the way!

  • Are you a contractor, steel fabricator, or erector and want to understand steel design so you can quickly size a steel beam or column? SteelClass has video modules that show you how! Or maybe you just want a basic understanding of steel design so you can be more competitive in your industry. SteelClass is the perfect online course for you!

  • Are you looking for an online Steel Design class that can be used in an accredited Civil Engineering program at the University level? SteelClass can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your program and is perfect for use as an online course.

You may be thinking, “What if I don’t have any background in engineering? Will I understand these classes?” The answer is YES! Prof. Hawk makes hard-to-understand engineering concepts easy to understand, even if you’ve never taken any engineering classes.

Maybe you want to learn about just a few topics in steel design, for example, maybe you really need to know how to design a steel beam. You can watch just the video modules related to beam design and be on your way. You’ll find that just those modules are worth the price of the entire package!
