These masonry course notes were developed for use in semester-long, undergraduate or a graduate course in masonry as part of a civil engineering or architectural engineering curriculum. Selected parts of the notes can also be used in architecture or construction courses. They comprise 25 lectures (plus a list of references), each intended for presentation in about 75 minutes. These Course Notes reference the 2013 TMS 402/602.
