☑ Gain a better mechanical understanding of how mechanisms work and relate to machine and robot design. Prepare yourself for the first class you will take in Mechanical Engineering at University.
Robots use mechanisms to perform a rich variety of tasks and while building a robot in high school can be a lot of fun and a great learning experience, this alone will not prepare you for the introductory class in Mechanical Engineering at the University level. To move to the next level students need to understand mechanism, 3D CAD and motion. This is the foundation of Robotics design and countless other areas concerning machine design. Understanding mechanisms and how they work is a critical part of Mechanical Engineering and Design. This class takes a look at various types of mechanism used to build machines and robots.

I like looking at the mechanisms. I am learning the process in how to create mechanisms, and think systematically at the same time creatively when forming new ideas.
Excellent presentations, concise and in depth. Instructor has great knowledge of mechanical design and the use of Solid Edge as a tool!
I have been wanting to start a course like this one and here it is. So I’m not just giving it a high rating but I’m looking to sign up for next level class in this training & subject series.
This course was very informative and good go to understand some of the basics of mechanics and their applications
Its good for basic mechanical assemblies. Needed more calculation data reference for better understanding.
Designing mechanical components and using the Solid Edge software explained. A very useful course for mechanical and design engineers.
it was my first time and that first time i really enjoyed that course also that are relate with my field and all that i only learn in theory and that are first time that see mechanism and motion
Great course. Got an idea of various mechanisms used and how to design that with the help of solid edge.
I am satisfy YOUR Mechanism and Motion lecture videos. Thanks for providing this excellent content. ..
Its a great way of teaching building mechanisms and developing real life applications.Thanks you so much for making such a beautiful teaching material and I am sure it not only helps youngsters but inspiring too
Very nicely explained. I am Solidworks guy, but after going through this course I would definitely try SolidEdge, the interface seems very friendly.
The concepts, being presented, are proving to be insightful. It's helping me to more to visually understand, those concepts.
