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 an engineering program. Engineers in the field are required to have good aptitude in studying and producing graphs, and in designing structures. 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, interpreting important results in statics, dynamic modelling, to the mechanics of soil response and modelling fluid dynamics.
Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, you should be able to complete the following. 1.Engineering knowledge •Apply knowledge of mathematics and engineering fundamentals to a wide range of practical procedures and practices. (DA 1) 2.Problem analysis •Develop from the qualitative description of the problem mathematical models derived from fundamental principles and justifiable assumptions. (DA2 - IoA 3) •Solve and check the results of the mathematical analysis for accuracy and validity of assumptions made. (DA2 - IoA 4) 3.Modern tool usage •Apply MATLAB to determine solutions to mathematical problems and to investigate the conclusions and limitations of certain mathematical models under various initial conditions. (DA5 - IoA 2)
