After studying this course, you should be able to:
understand how to relate physical dimensions and materials properties to static and dynamic behaviour
demonstrate an awareness of how small features are cut out in solid materials, and how small features are built up in solid materials
describe the piezoelectric effect and its use for producing small-scale movement in mechanical devices
state the relative significance of different forces at very small scales
identify key factors that influence the behaviour of mechanical vibrating and resonant systems.
