Steel Construction Institute
Principal Structural Engineer
Ricardo has a Master in Civil Engineering, specifically in structural mechanics, and a Master of Science in Steel and Composite Structures, both from University of Coimbra. His master’s dissertations were about steel-concrete composite structures, providing him an extensive knowledge about the subject. Before joining SCI, Ricardo worked in a steelwork contractor and, after that, in a structural design office. In those working experiences, he had the opportunity to be involved, among other topics, with steel buildings and equipment, steel-concrete composite buildings, steel and steel-concrete composite bridges as well as with offshore steel equipment.
