Introduction to the Finite Element Method (CV_ENG 4001/7001, MAE 4280/7280) – University of Missouri
This course covers a variety of topics related to the finite element method when applied to the analysis of solid, structural, fluid, and heat transfer problems. Specifically, we will apply the finite element method to solve a variety of problems including trusses, beams, frames, thermal analysis, and fluid mechanics.

Introduction to Dynamics (CV_ENG 2080) – University of Missouri
This course is an introduction to the study of bodies in motion as applied to engineering systems and structures. Basic fundamentals of particle and rigid body dynamics will be examined. This will consist of both the kinematics and kinetics of motion. Kinematics deals with the geometrical aspects of motion describing position, velocity, and acceleration, all as a function of time. Kinetics is the study of forces acting on these bodies and how they affect their motion.
