  • Overview

    This course aims at equipping students with the knowledge and practical skills needed for solving every day engineering problems. The course first reviews the concept of forces and vectors that were introduced to the students in an earlier engineering physics course. The course then covers topics in statics which include force systems on rigid bodies, distributed forces, analysis of structures, forces in beams and cables along with friction.
