Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Potential - Desperately Needed This introduction previews a course with great potential. Breaking down the mathematics of a simple pulley system is enlightening. Great potential to attract young people into engineering - something that is desperately needed and lacking in our society.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hope they fill out the whole course! The plus pilot course Engineering School for Everyone: Statics was a fantastic lecture! I hope the pilot becomes a whole series! This kind of in depth look at how basic engineering works has been underrepresented in The Great Courses Plus portfolio, especially considering the level of Math that is included (which is wonderful). I only mention it because I think with would compliment the courses currently available quite well. I hope the company will finish the whole series. P.S. The professor was great in pace and spoken clarity which is a must for technical subjects in my opinion. Additionally she sprang with enthusiasm which is a great way to engage the audience. Bonus points for helping women get recognized in the field! Great stuff all around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Introductory Course I think the professor displays not only great knowledge but great enthusiasm. I enjoyed how she applies the science of statics towards simple machines. My background is in chemical engineering and I am currently studying for my MS in mechanical engineering, and I felt that this course was great to brush up on some of the basics. I would recommend this to anyone who was interested in engineering. My only wish is that this course is expanded with her as an instructor.

Overview

Unravel the foundations of mechanical engineering and discover how powerful it can be to understand, design, and analyze the simple machines and structures around you.
Engineering School for Everyone: Statics

01: Engineering School for Everyone: Statics

Join Professor Haden to deconstruct a simple system—the pulley—and through this project, gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the machines and structures in your everyday world. As you dive into simple machines, you’ll see how learning the foundations of mechanical engineering—such as the laws of physics and conservation of momentum—can lead you to accomplish more complex tasks and systems. With this lecture, you’re taking the first step toward greater capabilities in the analysis of mechanics.
