Night School

AISC’s Night School Webinar Series

The American Institute of Steel Construction runs a webinar series known as Night School. Periodically, the Structural Stability Research Council offers webinars related to the stability of steel and steel-concrete composite structures through AISC’s Night School. Practicing engineers and related construction practitioners (e.g., manufacturers, fabricators, erectors, detailers) are the intended audience for these webinars.

Forthcoming AISC Night School Webinars from SSRC
