Professor Georgopoulos is Chair of Structural Engineering Practice at Kingston University London. He is also a practising engineer with many years’ unique multi-sector experience in seismic design such as conventional buildings in Greece and state-of-the-art structures in the UK (Trident Submarine Refitting Facility at Rosyth and Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station). Costas sits on the BSI B/525/8 committee on EC8, chairs the IStructE Seismic & Dynamic Events Panel and he is also author of the IStructE’s Examples for the seismic design of steel and concrete buildings to Eurocode 8 manual.
Dr Hau is a Senior Lecturer with the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Awarded the NUS President Graduate Fellowship in 2002, his PhD thesis focused on far-field effects of long-distance earthquake tremors from Sumatra to buildings in Singapore. He is a practicing qualified engineer who specializes in Buildings & Infrastructure Projects (including bridges) with more than 15 years of experience. He is co-author of the IStructE’s Examples for the seismic design of steel and concrete buildings to Eurocode 8.

This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This one-day, online course delivers key advice and guidance on the seismic design of structures to Eurocode 8, as well as the application of the Eurocode. Emphasis is placed on reinforced concrete buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
This course provides an introduction to structural steelwork design to Eurocode 3 for building design.
This course is designed to provide structural engineers with a greater understanding of fire safety, key legislation, and the principles of risk analysis in order to ensure that adequate structural performance in fire is achieved. Participants will examine case studies of structural and non-structural failures as a result of fire.
This one-day, online advanced practical workshop will teach complex timber engineering through worked examples. It encourages problem-solving through teaching tools and group discussion.
This course covers aspects of the geotechnical and structural design of spread and piled foundations. It is tailored for engineers working in small practices. The content is compliant with Eurocodes 2 and 7, with opportunities for comparisons with relevant British Standards.
This course supports the practising designer with composite design to Eurocode 4. It will enable an understanding of the essential requirements of this code in structural design and how the code operates.
