Applications in Engineering Mechanics

This course is part of a Specialization (series of courses) called Fundraising and Development.

This course applies principles learned in my course “Introduction to Engineering Mechanics” to analyze real world engineering structures. You will need to have mastered the engineering fundamentals from that class in order to be successful in this course offering. This course addresses the modeling and analysis of static equilibrium problems with an emphasis on real world engineering systems and problem solving.

Recommended Background:

You will need to have successfully completed my earlier course “Introduction to Engineering Mechanics” in order to be successful in this course.

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

mechanical engineer in 21 reviews

it is very helpful to engineering first year student to understand concepts of engineering mechanics this course is easy but conceptual and ineresting I am a Mechanical Engineer and like most of them engineers, I had very weak concepts of basics of Mechanical Engineering.

Dr. Whiteman does a great job teaching this class and many other mechanical engineering classes also available as MOOCs.

This course is specially designed for Mechanical Engineers.

Strongly recommended for all Mechanical Engineers.

I am a freshly graduated mechanical engineer.

I am a Mechanical Engineer and like most of them engineers, I had very weak concepts of basics of Mechanical Engineering.

Useless forum Great course thats great program for the students who is in mechanical engineering program.

Highly recommend for Mechanical Engineer.

engineering mechanics in 16 reviews

Applications in Engineering Mechanics is an excellent course.

You may find it very useful to purchase a copy of the recommended text (from which most if not all examples and test questions are taken), Engineering Mechanics: Statics by W.W. King and D.J.

I can recommend this course to all who wants to enhance their learning opportunities about Engineering Mechanics.

Perfect refresher or starter course for basic applications of engineering mechanics.

It was quite useful for someone like me who graduated 7 years ago, moved to the project management side of engineering and needed a good refresher on engineering mechanics Excellent course.

This course really helped me brush up my concepts and Dr Whiteman helps you understand difficult things easily.I was honoured to be part of this course It is very helpful to engineering first-year student to understand concepts of engineering mechanics this course is easy but conceptual and interesting It is an excellent course and very useful.

excellent course for those who want to learn about engineering mechanics.

Excelent course following introduction to engineering mechanics.

very helpful in 7 reviews

I found this course very helpful because all important topics of statics are explained very thoroughly.

Enjoyed course very much As a Mechanical Engineer, I found this course very helpful in order to review some of the knowledge learnt during my degree, improving my skills and getting a different point of view regarding mechanical calculations.

I find this course very helpful especially for students who are taking mechanical engineering.

This course is very helpful for me I am as B.Tech mechanical engineering student I have learn more about by this teacher.

Great course, Dr. Wayne Whiteman is an excellent lecturer, explains in great detail and gives several examples for practice.

THANKS TO Dr. Wayne Whiteman This course helped clarify the topics more.

Dr. Wayne Whiteman explained mechanics theorem and applications in this course in simple and clear way.

Muy buen curso y la explicación del Dr. Wayne Whiteman Anther excellent course!

Thank you very much Dr. Wayne Whiteman.

Mexico I would like to thank Dr. Wayne E. Whiteman & Geogia Tech.for their time Very good experience.HME Thank you Dr. Wayne Whiteman for your very helpfull lectures we were able to participate.

easy to understand in 4 reviews

Straightforward and easy to understand.

Dr. Whiteman makes the subject very easy to understand.

It is really easy to understand and concise.

Easy to understand, practice oriented and colourfull course.

real world in 4 reviews

I highly recommend this course because concepts are well explained by Dr. Whiteman, making easier to apply them to real world problems in Engineering Mechanics.

The material is presented in a logical and straight forward manner with applications to the real world.

it was more practical than others including more real world problem and it includes all the basics which helps to understand the subject with more clear picture I have my Masters in Mechanical Engineering and am also a licensed PE.

Once again thank you very much Dear Sir, Its been an honor to be the part of yours course, I enjoyed a lot & learned the solution more efficiently because the solutions of the problems were more Standard, Advanced & Easier for Real World Engineering Structures.
