1. Teaching students the basic principles of Mechanics and, through this knowledge, facilitate the understanding, formulation, modeling and solving of physical problems with strict mathematical formalism using differential/integral calculus.
2. Connection of the mathematical and physical knowledge to technology through examples and exercises.
3. Give students the confidence of Knowledge and Capability as they will be able to calculate and predict physical system.
4. Another objective, through the above, is the overcoming of the fragmental school knowledge/understanding of the World and its replacement with a scientific view and approach towards the problems of Applied Sciences.
5. Finally, the laboratory experience of the students develops their capability for team and personal scientific work and familiarizes them with the experimental setups/instruments and the process of measurement.
