Regular Course Offerings at the University of Colorado

Introduction to Finite Element Methods (ASEN 5007): 3-credit core graduate course, first taught Fall 1986, offered every year.
Nonlinear Finite Element Methods (ASEN 5107): 3-credit Technical Elective graduate course, first taught Spring 1987, offered every 2-3 years. [Covers geometric nonlinearities only, because material nonlinearities are taught in Civil Engineering courses.]
Advanced Finite Element Methods (ASEN 5367): 3-credit Technical Elective graduate course, first taught Spring 1990, offered every 2-3 years. Syllabus under complete revision 2000.
Structures (ASEN 3112): 4-credit core junior course merging the old-curriculum Structures 1 and 2 courses. Part of AES Curriculum 2000, first taught Fall 1998, offered every year. Note: web site moved to university's WebCT (web course tools) on Fall 2000; password access required.
