This course provides non-mechanical engineers and other professionals with an introduction to the core subject areas of mechanical engineering. Engineering as a profession is becoming increasingly multi-disciplinary and is also combining with other professions. People can find themselves working with mechanical engineers, without understanding the technical language or the key engineering principles.
This course focuses on the traditional mechanical engineering subject areas. It covers design, statics (stationary objects), dynamics (things that move), fluids (gases and liquids), and other general subjects. The theory covers the terminology and the basic laws that underpin each topic. A better understanding of the precise use of terms can help improve communication with mechanical engineers, and participation in mechanical engineering projects. This course covers a broad range of mechanical engineering subjects
This course is designed for professionals who work alongside mechanical engineers or in organizations where mechanical engineering is an important part of their business. It is also beneficial for those who wish to broaden their knowledge base and gain a practical insight into the subject
At the end of this course the participants will be able to:
