Responsible for the module:

Dr. Marc-André Pick

Admission requirements:


Recommended previous knowledge:

Basic knowledge of mathematics and physics, in the second semester also procedural programming in C.

Module objectives / desired learning outcomes:

Professional competence


Students can

  • describe the axiomatic procedure for working out the mechanical relationships;
  • Present specialist knowledge in the field of stereostatics and elastostatics;
  • solve problems in the areas of statics and elastostatics independently;
  • Explain the essential steps of modeling and deal with application scenarios in mechanics;
  • Master the basics of object-oriented programming in C ++;
  • Model and calculate simple questions from the topic of elastostatics object-oriented in C ++;
  • assess the importance of technical mathematicians in cooperation with engineers.

Students can

  • apply the essential elements of mathematical / mechanical analysis and modeling and implement them in the context of your own question;
  • apply basic methods of statics and elastostatics to engineering problems;
  • Estimate and assess the scope and limits of the static and elastostatic methods introduced and develop further approaches;
  • apply basic methods of object-oriented programming in C ++.

Personal competencies

Social skills

The students can come to work results in groups and support each other in finding solutions.


The students are able to assess their own strengths and weaknesses and to organize their time and learning management based on them.
