Engineering - mathematics, modelling, applications

The Open University

Course Information

Throughout the initial eight weeks, your study will strengthen and consolidate your skills and knowledge in already visited topics to ensure you have a robust foundation of numeracy and algebra essential for new concepts. Next, you’ll explore the techniques of trigonometry, calculus, complex numbers and matrices in the context of engineering examples such as motion, heat transfer and basic statics and electricity.

You’ll finish the Engineering – mathematics, modelling, applications module from The Open University with guided revision and develop exam techniques in preparation for the final examination.

What you will study

Mathematics is an essential component of engineering and forms the foundation of many engineering analysis techniques and concepts. The material you’ll study builds on your earlier study, as well as introducing several completely new mathematical concepts. All new mathematical methods in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, complex numbers, differential and integral calculus and matrices will be introduced and their application within an engineering context demonstrated.
