Unit Code: MTH410
Unit Name: Engineering Mathematics I
Description: This course forms the foundation of the advanced engineering mathematics techniques that students will learn in the diploma of engineering program. Engineers in the field are required to have a good aptitude for studying and producing graphs. In addition, engineers are required to maintain an excellent understanding of both Differential and Integral Calculus, which have wide applications in Engineering. Applications vary from conducting circuit analysis in Electrostatics to interpreting important results in Mechanical, Soil and Fluid Dynamics.
Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, students should be able to: 1. Apply knowledge of Functions, Differential and Integral Calculus to a wide range of applications including Mechanics, Fluid Statics (and Dynamics) and Electrostatics. 2. Develop mathematical equations of the fundamental mechanical or electrical problems (consisting of forces, velocity, acceleration, momentum, voltage, current, etc.). 3. Solve the mathematical model of the problem and input it into the system to verify the accuracy and validity of the model. 4. Apply MATLAB to use functions, plot and study graphs, solve complication Differentiation and Integration questions, analyse and verify solutions to related mechanical and electrical problems.
