  • Overview

    Dynamics is a branch of mechanics dealing with the motion of bodies under the action of forces. It has two
    distinct parts: "kinematics" which is the study of motion without reference to the forces causing the motion,
    and "kinetics", which relates the action of forces on bodies to their resulting motion. A thorough
    comprehension of dynamics provides one of the most useful and powerful tools for analysis in engineering.
    Applied Dynamics I will focus on the following topics: - Particle Kinematics - Plane Kinematics of Rigid
    Bodies - Plane Kinetics of Rigid Bodies - Work-energy of Rigid Bodies - Impulse and Momentum - Vibration.
    There are no laboratory activities associated with this course.

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

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.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

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.
