## Teaching methods

During the course the fundamental of seismic design will be illustrated togheter with some practical applications.

## Assessment methods and criteria

The students have to design a building made of reinforced concrete, steel or masonry. The examination consists into the design discussion and into an oral examination where the knowledge of the course topics will be checked
