Simply Rhino UK has just opened applications for its Parametric Engineering course at Imperial College London, starting on Thursday January 19, 2017.

The Parametric Engineering course with Arup, Ramboll, and Simply Rhino at Imperial College attempts to show the benefits of parametric thinking in the field of Engineering.

This course is a nine-week, hands-on, evening class on the Grasshopper platform for Rhinoceros and its structural and physics simulation plug-ins (Karamba, Kangaroo) specifically for the practice of Engineering.

At the end of the course, you should be able to create entire parametric models such as a stadium or a bridge on Grasshopper and use plug-ins to create creative loops between the model and live feedback from simulations.

The course will be taught through practice and theory by award-winning structural engineers, architects, and software developers and will only be open to students and teachers (no commercial places available).
