Flipped Strength of Materials" Engineering Course"


Mechanics is the foundation of all engineering programs. Statics, dynamics and strength of materials are the three essential courses of engineering mechanics. In the last two years, with the help of CSU course redesign program, we have done significant amount of work in redesigning statics and dynamics courses. Strength of material is the next course in this sequence. We have approximately 550 students taking this course every year. The current failure rate in this class is 35%. However, another 35% of the students receive “C” grade in this class, meaning about 70% of all our students receive “C” grade or lower. Redesigning this course will complete the engineering mechanics sequence and help improve our overall student success.
