Structural

The Structural Depth Review Class covers all the topics listed in the NCEES Structural Depth Exam Specifications. Amongst the topics covered in this class are: AASHTO Gravity and Lateral Loads, Analysis of Determinate and Indeterminate Structures, Design and Detailing of Structural Components in Steel, Concrete, Timber and Masonry (according to NCEES references), Temporary Structures and misc. topics. The class has a total of 50 hours of lecture and problems solving. A 4-hour simulation exam, which includes 40 problems, is offered at the end of the review class to provide students an opportunity to experience the environment of the real exam.

What People Are Saying

“I received the exam results today from NCEES and I have passed the exam. I am very grateful for the excellent lectures, exemplary notes and the dedication of the teachers, that helped me to pass the PE Civil (structural Depth) in my first attempt. I am very sure that I could not have achieved this success without EET’s excellent coaching. Thanking you all.”

“I want to thank the professors for all the help they gave me these last few months. I felt better prepared this second time around, the professors covered a lot of the material that was in the test. I feel like I am a better engineer because of this test experience and this class. Hey guys I just wanted to let you know that I passed the exam. Thanks for all your help.”
