Department: BSc in Electro-Mechanical Engineering
Module Description: Convey the fundamental role of mechanics in engineering. Introduce the concepts of statics mechanics of the force systems in 2 and 3 dimensions with the equilibrium and free body diagrams. Introduce the concept of kinematics to describe the motion of particles and bodies in two dimensions.
