Applications in Engineering Mechanics Course Overview

Applications in Engineering Mechanics coursera 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.
