### Description

Version: 3.0 start 01 August 2020

#### Short description

This module sets out to show engineering students the basic concepts and principles of statics in a clear and concise manner. Students systematically develop their problem-solving skills for static issues.

#### Module coordinator

Eberlein Robert (ebei)
