Engineering Mathematics and Technical Computing

Module Aims

  • To present and provide skills in the application of more advanced mathematics and systems modelling concepts that underpin many areas of Engineering.
  • To build on the fundamental material introduced in the year 1 Engineering Mathematics and Systems module and introduce more advanced topics related to the analysis of a wide variety of engineering systems.
  • To develop skills in the use of MATLAB for modelling and analysis of engineering systems.
  • To introduce computer programming concepts and develop programming skills within MATLAB.
  • To consolidate the development of problem solving and modelling skills as required in other Year 2 modules and that students are equipped with the skills to tackle advanced material in modules taught in later years.

By the end of this module students should be able to:

  • Recognise and apply advanced mathematical tools and techniques to solve engineering problems.
  • Develop complex mathematical models of engineering systems.
  • Solve complex engineering problems using MATLAB. Understand and apply programming concepts and methods.
  • Model engineering problems involving dynamic simulation techniques making appropriate simplifying assumptions.
  • Analyse models mathematically using appropriate statistical techniques and evaluate limitations of measurement on data used.
