Course Description

This course introduces scientific principles of kinematics, dynamics, and electromagnetism relating to engineering applications.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs):

At Associate level this course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:
1.1 Descriptive, formula-based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the practice area.
1.2 Procedural-level understanding of the mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences which underpin the practice area.
1.3 In depth practical knowledge and skills within specialist sub-disciplines of the practice area.
2.1 Application of established technical and practical methods to the solution of well- defined engineering problems.

At Bachelor level this course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:
 1.1 Comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline.
 


On completion of this course you should be able to achieve following Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs):
1.Solve simple engineering problems by applying principles of kinematics and dynamics:

  • Linear and two-dimensional motion
  • Force and gravity. Friction
  • Newton’s laws of motion and its applications to circular motion. Momentum and collisions.
  • Work and energy. Conservation of energy.

2. Apply principle of rotational dynamics and static equilibrium to well defined engineering problems.
3. Analyze electromagnetic and wave phenomena in the fields of:

  • Electrostatics
  • Magnetic fields 
  • Wave motion
  • Nature and propagation of electromagnetic waves 
  • SI divisions of the electromagnetic spectrum
  • Methods of communications used in each electromagnetic spectrum division
  • Wave phenomena used in communication


Overview of Learning Activities

Common activities for both Associate and Bachelor levels:
● Attending scheduled lectures and tutorials.
● Reading prescribed sections of the text book and watching VIDEO presentations prior to the lecture to reinforce/strengthen your understanding of principles and applications.
● Completing Practice sheets in which you will document your attempts for solving problems, alone and in groups, and participation in team based learning.
● Undertaking assignment that will challenge you through application oriented problems, and will enhance your problem solving skills.
● Laboratory experiments will test your ability to apply theoretical principles in the practical environment and writing reports.
● Simulation, videos, and tutorial sessions will enhance your understanding of the key concepts and practical applications.
 

At Associate level you will also learn through following additional activities:
● Online Quizzes during the semester will provide information to you and your lecturer about progress of the learning process. A feedback that you receive from the lecturer will help you to work on your weaknesses for the final examination if necessary.
● You are encouraged to watch videos on special topics available in the Carlton library.
Each topic will be covered through a three - hour lecture class followed by tutorial class of 2 hours. You are required to match each class hour by one hour of your own work using reference texts and online/internet resources and simulation labs.
 

At Bachelor level you will also learn through following additional activities:
● Project
 


Overview of Learning Resources

Learning resources will consist of recommended references and class notes which may be accessed through "myRMIT" if you are in Melbourne and via "RMIT online" if you are based in Vietnam.
The set of references is deliberately broad, including books, journal publications, government reports, industry standards, handbooks, and web-based resources.
