Course name: Mechanics

ECTS: 2 

Language of instruction: Polish/English

Teaching methods/load: Exercises (30h / semester)

Teacher responsible: Agata Walczak

 

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge of mathematics and physics (Secondary School level).

 

Description of learning outcomes

An objective is to acquire students with fundamental principles of statics, kinematics and dynamics. Students will be able to use their knowledge in practical situations such as: evaluation of building constructions and equipment reliability. The knowledge of fundamental concepts of mechanics is essential to further studies in fire safety engineering field
