is a basic science that deals with energy. This course introduces students to
thermodynamics. It will discuss basic concepts and introduces the various forms
of energy and
as well as properties of pure substances. A general relation for the
conservation of energy
be developed and applied to closed systems and extended to open systems. The
second law of
be introduced and applied to cycles, cyclic devices and processes.
Definition of Mechanics as a subject of study: Mechanics is the science that describes and predicts the conditions of rest or motion of bodies under the action of forces. It is the foundation of most engineering sciences and is an indispensable prerequisite to their study.The introductory of Mechanics is STATICS.STATICS is : The branch of physics that deals with physical systems in equilibrium, in which no bodies are in motion, and all forces are offset or counterbalanced by other forces.
- The course provides students with an introduction to mechatronics and its application in the real world. It will examine a number of key topics of mechanical engineering, electrical/electronics and computer control disciplines with an emphasis on the integrated approach. At end of thecourse, students should be able to define and describe clearly the term ‘mechatronics’ and its philosophy, relate the importance and contribution of mechatronic systems in industry, identify and describe clearly a mechatronic system and its main components, analyze and synthesize a basic mechatronic system and design simple mechatronic system.
- This course is designed to equip students to acquired engineering economy and accounting concepts, principles and methods. The focus of this course is to provide understanding on engineering economic principles and methods and to apply it in engineering field. The course has two parts. Part 1 is designed to teach students to formulate cash-flow, perform analysis on engineering economic problems and evaluate between alternative of engineering investment/projects to make decision. Part 2 is designed to teach students to perform cost estimates using traditional and current costing techniques in production process, prepare simple financial statement and interpret financial performance of business firms for decision and control.
