## Overview course in Mechanical Engineering for non-MEs

 Course Syllabus: MAE1498 – Overview of Mechanical Engineering for Non-MEs Lecture 1 Introduction E-Lectures from Text: Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Statics Part 1: Statics Lecture 2 Chapter 2 Statics of Particles - Concurrent Forces Lecture 3 Chapter 3 Rigid Bodies I: Equivalent Systems of Forces Lecture 4 Chapter 4 Rigid Bodies II: Equilibrium Lecture 5 Chapter 5 Distributed Forces: Centroids and Centers of Gravity E-Lectures from Text: Mechanics of Materials Part 2: Mechanics of Materials Lecture 6 Introduction: Concept of Stress Lecture 7 Chapter 2 – First Half Stress and Strain – Axial Loading I Lecture 8 Chapter 2 – Second Half Stress and Strain – Axial Loading II Lecture 9 Chapter 3 Torsion Lecture 10 Chapter 4 – First Half Pure Bending I Lecture 11 Chapter 4 – Second Half Pure Bending II

This course is an introduction to the basics of statics and mechanics of materials for non-mechanical engineers. These fundamental mechanical engineering principles are required for advanced electronic packaging courses. Key concepts of equilibrium criteria; distributed forces; internal forces; stress and strain; yield and failure criteria; stress and strain in axial, torsional, and bending loads, will be discussed. Examples of thermal stress analysis are also discussed. The course requires students to have prior basic trainings in mathematics and physics.
