ESDEP-the European Steel Design Education Programme - lectures

It is clear from the foregoing that the demands on engineers' skills and knowledge are going to increase for the foreseeable future. Within the context of an increasing rate of change, society will demand an increasing standard from its built environment. Both initial technical education and in-career training are going to become even more important than they are today.

The greatest training resources for steel in Europe are in its widely distributed network of technical skills. A particular strength of the steel construction industry is the existence of an infrastructure of specialist personnel who have learnt to work together through the media of both the ECCS technical committees and the drafting committees of Eurocode 3 and Eurocode 4.

ESDEP, the European Steel Design Education Programme, was established in 1988 to draw on both resources to prepare a comprehensive set of teaching aids on steel design and construction. It comprises nineteen working groups with an appropriate supporting network of steering committees. Over 200 specialists from all countries of the European Community and the European Free Trade Association have contributed to the project, Slides 39 and 40 summarise how the project was managed and the distribution of contributors and working groups. The projects was sponsored by the European Commission and the steel industry from every country in both the EC and EFTA. Steelwork designers and constructors who will benefit from the improved quality and performance of the industry, have much cause for gratitude for their farsightedness.
