Electrical and Mechanical Principles - ENGG150

This unit is core for many engineering majors offered by the Department of Engineering. It introduces fundamental modelling approaches used to study electronic and mechanical systems, allowing engineers to predict the real-world performance of these objects. Students will apply and practice foundational physics and mathematics knowledge to construct and solve models of electronic and mechanical systems. This process enables students to study complex linear circuits and the forces and reactions that arise in real machines and structures. The study of these fundamental domains of engineering makes use of important laws, theories, concepts and abstractions that in part define the practice of electronic and mechanical engineering around the world. The concepts developed are required in later units where students design mechanical and or electronic devices or systems.
