Why is it important?
They way in which the art of designing reinforced concrete structures is taught in higher education engineering programs needs to evolve and adapt to this computarized era in which we are submerged. With the aid of Computed Aided Learning software the scope of current courses of reinforced concrete design can be enhanced as well as their learning outcomes, broadening opportunities for their integration into industry and research from their very early stages of education.
