COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course is setup to introduce students with basic concepts of Engineering mechanics based on
equilibrium, principles and application of forces, calculation of resultants, geometrical properties related
to different shapes and their application in Civil Engineering. Further to this an introduction to simple
dynamics is given to the students.
COURSE OBJECTIVES:
The students willTo understand concepts of engineering mechanics, which haveand its direct and indirect
applications in the field of Civil Engineering.

PRACTICAL APPLICATION:

This course is the first Engineering oriented course in the first semester. The course will make
the foundation of critical and analytical Engineering knowledge of Civil Engineering students.
The very first step in every design or analysis problem of Civil Engineering, forces and
geometrical properties are first things to tackle. ThereforeTherefore, engineering mechanics
creates ability in students to analyse or design the structures by calculation of loads and
properties of structural elements.
