Upon completion of this module students will be able to:
- Recognise the connections between mathematics and engineering, and how mathematical ideas are embedded in engineering contexts.
- Represent real-world systems from engineering in a mathematical framework.
- Identify and draw upon a range of mathematical concepts, including Calculus, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations to analyse specific problems and identify the appropriate mathematics to realise a solution.
- Employ appropriate computer programming and modelling techniques and statistical analysis to efficiently solve and evaluate the performance of engineering systems.
- Use estimation, approximation and dimensional analysis to reduce complexity.
- Relate the behaviour of the output of mathematical models to the underlying physical or conceptual models of interest.
- Carry out engineering problem solving both collaboratively in a team and independently.
- Present and interpret mathematical results in effective and appropriate ways to varied audiences, including non-mathematical engineering audiences.
