Abstract

This MQP report presents a structural design for a two-story campus center for Becker Colleges. This project encompasses the Capstone Design requirements. Many aspects of steel design were explored in this project, including the calculation of lateral and horizontal loads, structural analysis, and AISC provisions. This MQP drew upon topics learned in the classroom and applied them to a real world situation; it has broadened my understanding of structural engineering.
