The Ural Federal University is offering free online course on Engineering Mechanics. Students will be introduced to mathematical modeling of engineering designs, standard machines, and mechanisms using 2D and 3D diagrams. The course begins with statics, which is the science of forces.
In this nine-week course, applicants will learn about statics through real life engineering examples. Engage with the theory to grasp the full understanding of simple machines and complex mathematical models. This course will start on December 4, 2017.
