Caution to students: This course contains elements of ISU's EM 274, EM 324, and EM 345. Treatment of statics concepts is likely less in-depth than in ISU's EM 274. Substitution is approved, but students should be aware that extra review may be required for some subsequent, sequential courses at ISU.
