Basics of Engineering Mechanics
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the basics of modern mechanics developed by Sir Isaac Newton in the late seventeenth century. This course describes the effect of static and dynamic forces on objects and includes a discussion of the forces commonly encountered in daily life. Also this course defines energy, work and power; identifies their various forms; and discusses the conservation of energy, work, and power including the measurement and calculation of each.


This 3 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and civil engineers, facility and maintenance personnel, and other technical staff who are interested in understanding the principles of engineering mechanics.
