ES19315 Engineering Mathematics
Introductory description
ES19315 Engineering Mathematics
Module aims
To present, in context, and provide skills in the application of fundamental Mathematics concepts that underpin all of Engineering. To encourage the development of problem solving as required in other Year 1 modules and in order that more advanced material can be tackled in modules taught in later years.
Outline syllabus
This is an indicative module outline only to give an indication of the sort of topics that may be covered. Actual sessions held may differ.
Mathematics:
Functions, Algebra and Algebraic Manipulation, Coordinate Geometry, Differentiation, Vector Algebra, Matrices and Determinants, Matrix Algebra and Linear equations, Complex Numbers, Partial Differentiation. Integration, Applications of Integration, Solution of 1st and 2nd Order Ordinary Differential Equations, Laplace Transforms, Probability Theory, Discrete and Continuous Probability Distributions.
Learning outcomes
By the end of the module, students should be able to:
 Recognise and be able to apply mathematical tools and techniques to solve engineering based problems. [C1(D), M1(D), C3(D), M3(D)]
 Recognise and be able to apply probabilistic and statistical tools and techniques to solve engineering based problems. [C1(D), M1(D), C3(D), M3(D)]
 Make appropriate assumptions to simplify and thus model reallife Engineering problems. [C1(D), M1(D), C3(D), M3(D)]
 Analyse models using basic mathematical techniques including statistical and numerical techniques. [C1(D), M1(D), C3(D), M3(D)]
Indicative reading list
"Mathematics for Engineers: A Modern Interactive Approach (Fourth Edition)" by Anthony Croft and Robert Davison, Pearson/Prentice Hall, 20015, ISBN 9781292065939
Subject specific skills
Ability to integrate analytical, mathematical and programming skills for analysing, developing and critically evaluating mathematical engineering models. Ability to be pragmatic, taking a systematic approach and the logical and practical steps necessary for complex concepts to become a reality.
Transferable skills
Ability to overcome difficulties by employing skills, knowledge and understanding in a flexible manner. Ability to apply mathematical and computational methods to communicate parameters, model and optimise solutions. Ability to apply problemsolving skills, information retrieval, and the effective use of specific software packages and general IT facilities. Ability to plan selflearning and improve performance as the foundation for lifelong learning and continuous professional development.
