Coursera provides the programme in partnership with the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). The course imparts knowledge of critical concepts like force and motion, work-energy, impulse-momentum in the context of Newton’s second, and how it acts over time and displacement. 

Apart from the high-quality video lectures, which are about 15 min in length, the class will also consist of many readings and practice problem-solving. Students will also receive homework assignments, and the Rigid Body Dynamics programme will culminate with a final exam, which will incorporate all important topics learnt by you throughout the course.
