Engineering Mechanics (1501ENG)

Engineering mechanics is both a foundation and a framework for most engineering disciplines. This course provides a basic knowledge of Newtonian mechanics, rigid-body mechanics, elasticity and structural analysis. In particular, the principles of statics and their applications in engineering, the methods of static analysis, and techniques of engineering computation are expounded. Students are expected not only to acquire a good grasp of the principles but also to develop the computational and analytical skills which are vital in obtaining correct engineering solutions. In practice, a wrong solution can lead to an engineering disaster. This course is designed to enable students to acquire fundamental knowledge in engineering. It forms an integral part of the analysis and design training provided in the Engineering programs. This course is offered in trimester 2 and 3 at both the Gold Coast and Nathan campuses.
