Education Aims: To enable recognition and provide familiarity with the mathematical types and properties of partial differential equations and to develop an ability to utilise a variety of general solution techniques.
Knowledge and understanding of mathematics necessary to support application of key engineering principles. To apply mathematical methods, tools and notations proficiently in the analysis and solution of engineering problems.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
In-class progress test to provide formative feedback on the understanding and accurate calculation and expression of solutions to selected topics.
Exam (90%) – testing problem solving through application of mathematical tools on typical problems and their analysis.
