### Replacing course(s)

This course replaces the following course(s): CHEE2315, CIVL2310 and MECH2710. Students who have successfully completed CHEE2315, CIVL2310 or MECH2710 are not eligible to enrol in ENGG2300.

### Learning outcomes

On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

1. Solve elementary fluid mechanics problems encountered by engineers

2. Identify fluid mechanics related problems

3. Conduct fluid experiments in a laboratory setting

4. Demonstrate report writing skills commensurate with second year engineering students
