Sydney Harbor Bridge: The Giant Coat Hanger (Live Webinar)PE, RA, AIA HSW

Jeffrey Syken

In this course, we will examine the background and events leading up to the design, construction and completion of the Sydney Harbor Bridge in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. To fully understand and appreciate the edifice, we’ll examine the 19th century roots of the bridge, competitions held (starting in 1900) to select a suitable design for the bridge as well as the political, economic and social atmosphere by which the bridge was conceived, designed and, ultimately built.

Furthermore, we will examine in-depth and detail the engineering and architecture involved in designing the bridge as well as the construction methods, materials and systems utilized. Also, we will examine the alterations made to the bridge since its opening on March 19, 1932 and how the bridge has adapted itself to modern traffic needs. As well, we will consider the lasting legacy of one of the world’s most recognizable and greatest bridges’.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.

Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors.

You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.
