ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS 2

MAT2EM2

2015

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject provides the mathematical knowledge and skills that are required for solving engineering problems. Topics covered in this subject include: mathematical modelling; MATLAB fundamentals and programming and applications; linear regression and non-linear regression; calculus of vectors; functions of several variables; partial differentiation and multiple integrals; numerical techniques for differentiation and integration; and ordinary differentiation equations including first and second order differential equations. Studying through these topics, a conceptual understanding of the fundamental mathematical and numerical approaches that are needed in the practice of structural, civil and municipality design as well as construction management will be developed. Skills in using MATLAB and application of appropriate mathematical processes to solve engineering problems also be developed among students.
