Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.

Hours & Credits
This module introduces principal modelling techniques in solid mechanics and serves as a macro-mechanical complement to the courses Materials Science 1: Properties of Matter (MAT 100) and Functional Materials (MAT203) focusing on micromechanical aspects of materials science. Fundamental concepts (e.g. Newton's laws, force/movement, stress/strain, energy/work, statics/dynamics, friction/creep/fatigue etc.) will be studied to derive mechanical models for the description of the behaviour of materials. Corresponding applications for real-life design tasks are finally discussed to get insight into basic mechanics-based material selection criteria.

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Eligibility for courses may be subject to a placement exam and/or pre-requisites.
Some courses may require additional fees.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
