International Fees

International fees are typically three times the amount of domestic fees. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

Following the study of bodies in static equilibrium, this course introduces another aspect of engineering mechanics, namely dynamics. Dynamics consists of kinematics; a study of the geometry of motion, as well as kinetics; a study of the geometry of motion and associated forces. Kinetic analysis includes methods based on Newton's second law of motion, conservation of energy and conservation of momentum. For mechanical applications, the forces associated with motion are critical to the design of many types of structures and mechanical devices.
