Teaching Aids

The AISC steel teaching aids have been developed to assist universities in preparing students to become professionals knowledgeable in the use of structural steel. Educators, students and others within the academic engineering community have the permission of AISC to download the steel teaching aids free of charge.  

The teachings aids have been divided among three different academic disciplines, architecture, civil & architectural engineering, and construction management, in accordance with where the knowledge provided will be most relevant.  Because of overlap among the disciplines, some teaching aids may appear in more than one category.  Regardless of discipline, all of the teaching aids are valuable to anyone studying or teaching in the design and construction fields.
