Calendar notes

Introduction to the laws of conservation of mass, linear momentum, angular momentum and energy and their application to engineering problems. Topics include control volume analysis, fluid statics, Bernoulli’s equation, heat conduction, diffusion, linear elasticity, stresses and strains specific to direct and torsional loading, material constitutive relationships (including anisotropy, nonlinearity, and viscoelasticity), axial and transverse loading, and pressure loading of engineering structures and biomaterials.

Prerequisite: ENGGEN 150, or ENGSCI 111, or B+ or higher in MATHS 108 or 110 or 150 or 153, or B+ or higher in MATHS 120 and 130

Academic integrity

The University of Auckland will not tolerate cheating, or assisting others to cheat, and views cheating in coursework as a serious academic offence. The work that a student submits for grading must be the student's own work, reflecting his or her learning. Where work from other sources is used, it must be properly acknowledged and referenced. This requirement also applies to sources on the world-wide web. A student's assessed work may be reviewed against electronic source material using computerised detection mechanisms. Upon reasonable request, students may be required to provide an electronic version of their work for computerised review.

All students enrolled at the University of Auckland are required to complete a compulsory Academic Integrity course, usually in their first semester/year of enrolment. The University of Auckland’s full guidelines on procedures and penalties for academic dishonesty are available here.

This site intends to guide you through your chosen specialisation at the Faculty of Engineering. The semester links lets you view detailed course information for your chosen course. Please note that the structure displayed for your specialisation here will reflect what’s available over the upcoming semesters, but detailed information may be from a previous year.

All the information here is accurate at the time of publication, but you are are advised to additionally consult our official document, the University of Auckland Calendar, for accurate academic regulations, requirements, and policies.
