  1. Hi thanks so much for the course information you have provided. I have had a fair idea already since I am interested to study Architecture. I will appreciate if you could provide me a detail on Structural Engineering Architecture or Program offered that covers Wonders Architecture, Structural Architecture and Residential Architecture. I am interested to study the mentioned course.
    Thanks alot and all the best.

    • Hi, Cris!

      Thank you for visiting our site.

      As much as we’d like to help, we don’t have information about structural engineering yet. We’d make a post about it if and when we do come across such information, but for now, you might want to try your luck with other possible sources like the professional organization of structural engineers perhaps.

      Good luck! 🙂
