Disclaimer: I did this during the transition to online teaching during the pandemic. I knew this subject was going to be hard but it's actually brutal. Please don't think "oh I'm looking for a subject to do, maybe I'll do Eng Mech" because thinking that is wrong. Only do it if you have to because it's not fun. The content was interesting and the assignments okay, but there was so much expected knowledge and when the issue was raised that most of the cohort didn't know certain terminology and concepts, the teaching staff didn't really do anything to rectify that. The exam was an online and open book exam, but that's no excuse to make it 10000 times harder than past exams. I had never felt so useless in my life. I've heard the second-semester lecturers are better so if you do have to do Eng Mech, just do it in the second semester to lessen the pain.

This is the worst subject I have done at uni so far. Unless it is essential do not do this subject. The content is not necessarily hard but the teaching is so bad. The lecturer for statics and solids (Christian Brandle) has bad handwriting and it takes you half the lecture to realise the letters he used. The lecturer for Dynamics (Bagus Nugroho) tries to make some dad jokes, but he is worse. I did this in See 1 and it was a bad choice, I've heard the lecturers in Sem 2 are better. Exam was messed up with one important fact missing leading to a 30 mark question being wrong. The teaching staff are incapable of doing a good job. The head tutor Dan (Daejun Kim) is probably the rudest tutor I ever met. Overall I don't recommend this subject. Stay out of it if you can

Lecturer for sem 1 was horrible, skips over stuff and could barely use the doc cam right when doing problems, the tutors were better at explaining concepts than the lecturer, the statics part is pretty easy but dynamics hits you hard. I hear semester 2 has a way better lecturer so I'd say do the subject in sem 2

The subject was very content heavy and not structured well, the questions in the tute and lectures barely even related to the final exam and the problem sheets are unnecessarily difficult. You would be lucky if you could even attempt half of the problem sheets. Thankfully the exam wasn't too hard and this subject was over and done with

If you're going to do this subject, do it during semester 2, or summer, as they both have great lecturers. First semester's lecturer made the subject a lot more difficult than it needed to be. Overall I really enjoyed the subject, despite some of the Pracs feeling somewhat "cheap". The Statics part of the subject is relatively intuitive, while the dynamics kicks it up a notch, so be prepared.

Easy and fun subject to get you interested in Engineering. Lecturer is knowledgeable and the content is good.

The first half of this subject is statics and the second half is dynamics. Analysis of shearing forces, bending moments are covered, which are crucial to mechanical/civil engineers
