Subject Description
In this subject students will explore fundamental laws of motion and their application to the analysis and design of simple structures. Students will undertake a series of design and build projects to see the effects of concepts of mechanics in real structures. Working in design teams, students will also explore the professional responsibilities of engineers in terms of accountability, liability and sound design and analysis techniques.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Apply fundamental physical principles to the design of simple structures.
2. Analyse forces acting on and within structural elements.
3. Apply logical engineering design practices to multi-faceted problems involving engineering mechanics.
4. Demonstrate self directed learning related to solving problems in engineering.
5. Present calculations, designs, research and critical analysis in a professional manner.
6. Work as a productive member of a team, recognising roles, responsibilities and accountabilities of individuals in a team.
7. Describe the role of engineers in society and their responsibilities in relation to the design of engineered artefacts.
