MECH 1141 - Statics

Mechanical Engineering Part-time Studies Course

School of Energy

BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the Winter 2022 term as informed by BC Provincial Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.

Course Details

This course introduces the basics for the design and analysis of many types of structures and mechanical devices encountered in engineering. Topics include trigonometry, vector analysis, forces, moments, free body diagrams (FBD) and equilibrium, applied to the analysis of frames, trusses, machines, cable-pulley systems and systems with friction.
