This study has been carried out to identify the knowledge of students about the irregularity of the structures and to assess the effect of power point presentation provided. It was conducted on the last year undergraduate students at Gazi University Department of Architecture. The questionnaire form designed by the researcher to collect data, was used as a pre-test to know about the students' earthquake resistant design. Then the students were provided with earthquake resistant design training. Following the training, the questionnaire was employed as a post-test to identify the effect of the training and the difference between the pre-test and post-test was determined. Selection and/or peer review under responsibility of Prof. Dr. Ayse Cakir Ilhan.
