The first part of a comprehensive series on pre-engineering courses, Introduction to Engineering Statics covers fundamental problems of rigid bodies in equilibrium, as well as other fundamental principles. Statics is the fundamental course in many engineering programs; the course is based upon material covered at undergraduate engineering courses. A full understanding of statics is not only helpful, but necessary to comprehend the next engineering courses that follow.
Whether you are interested in dipping your toes in university-level engineering curriculum, love to solve tricky, puzzle-like problems, or wish to prepare yourself for the rigors of university-level engineering curriculum, this course is right for you.
