idk, you learn the concept in physics, but it's VERY basic in physics compared to dynamics. And statics easily took the full semester as well with the amount of information. Strength of materials might be the same. Here that's the name of a class that Civils take after Mechanics of Materials though.
If they are stuffing dynamics and statics into a single 3 credit class... they really aren't giving you a full dose of either of them. Just the basic easy part. The first part of dynamics was fairly easy. Dynamics is a common class for weeding out those that can't handle engineering, and combining it with statics for a single semester sounds like they are removing half of it.
