Engineering Mechanics - Student Learning Outcomes

LWC Engineering Mechanics graduates will be able to:

1.1: Mathematical Modeling Physical Phenomena

    The student will be able to model physical structures and processes with calculus based techniques and produce a solution (either analytical or numerical).

2.1: Structural Analysis

    The student will be able to synthesize Newtonian Physics with static analysis to determine the complete load impact (net forces, shears, torques, and bending moments) on all components (members and joints) of a given structure with a load.

3.1: Data Interpretation

    The student will demonstrate the ability to read and interpret data tables by identifying an appropriate table from a set of tables and extrapolating from the given entries.

4.1: Mastery of 1st & 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics

    The student will demonstrate understanding of the 1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics by utilizing energy balance analysis and entropic analysis.

Assessment of Engineering Mechanics Outcomes

These outcomes will be assessed using a variety of assessment methods including:
    written papers
    case studies
