Course Online Resources : E-Learning/Sakai system ( https://lss.at.ufl.edu/ )—all documents, homework, grades, etc. will be posted on this system. Course Objectives: The purpose of the course is to provide students with the means of analyzing and designing various machine and load bearing structures. Upon completion of this course each student should have: 1. Basic understanding of engineering mechanics and the ability to apply this understanding to analyze and solve a given problem. 2. Basic understanding of material properties and mechanical deformation. 3. The ability to apply advanced science and engineering principles in the design and analysis of structures to support loads within a given limit of safety. Contribution of course to meeting the professional component: EGM 3520 supports several program outcomes enumerated in the Mission Statement of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE). Specific MAE program outcomes supported by this course include: Being able to work professionally in mechanical systems areas including the design and realization of such systems. ( ME Program Outcome M4 ). Mathematics (25%), Engineering Sciences (50%), Engineering Design (25%) Relationship of course to program outcomes: This course achieves the following Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) outcomes [note
