    Typically there are Statics and Stength of Materials. However, Dynamics may also be considered part of Mechanics.

    Often engineering mechanics is divided into Statics and Dynamics.

    Re: Mechanics

    You can also divide it in "kinematics" and "dynamics".

    All that depends on the angle of attack a particular pedagogy wants to take.
