KME271 Engineering Mathematics

(KMA260 Mathematics for Engineers 2) Is for engineering students who have completed a first unit in calculus and linear algebra. The emphasis is on mathematical models, ideas and applications that are of use to engineers. Studies cover: theory and engineering applications of calculus of several variables; vector fields; methods and solution of ordinary differential equations; Fourier series; linear algebra; and an introduction to probability and statistics.

KME300 Numerical Methods for Engineers

Provides students with various fundamental numerical processes that enable them to obtain approximate but useful solutions to mathematical models of engineering problems. Students are expected to complete assignments on a weekly basis. Topics include: errors in computations; solution of linear and non-linear equations; approximation of functions; numerical integration and differentiation; and differential equations and optimisation.
