Programming for Structural Engineers

Go from zero programming experience to creating and solving structural models with Python and JavaScript!

About Programming for Structural Engineers course

Welcome to SkyCiv’s Introduction to Programming, for Structural Engineers. We’re going to be teaching the basics and more advanced skills you need, to solve real-life structural engineering problems using code. This course covers the basics of programming, including; variables, arrays, loops, functions, and other tools of programming, all through the lens of a real structural engineering problem.

SkyCiv API Technology

An API (Application Program Interface) is the ability to connect to our software directly, without going through the user interface. Simply put, APIs allow users to submit some kind of input, perform an action, and return with a response.

Other industries have been taking advantage of APIs for quite some time. For example, flight comparison websites use APIs from a variety of flight providers to help you search for the best deal without having to visit each airline’s website individually. SkyCiv API applies the same concept to the structural engineering context. With a single click, you can generate a model, run an analysis, design checks and respond with a simple pass/fail result, without the need for any visual or graphical user input.
