Get a handle on advanced mathematics for engineering

The skill set will offer you a unique opportunity to systematically grasp advanced engineering mathematics and numerical methods techniques to innovatively solve engineering tasks.

You will develop analytical problem-solving abilities to carry out engineering design and operations or maintenance activities. It is ideal for those pursuing higher engineering qualifications and careers at para-professional level.

This course is ideal for FIFO workers - talk to us about how you can study this course flexibly.

Gain these skills:

  • Develop your underpinning core mathematical skills and essential knowledge in technical mathematics/advanced engineering mathematics
  • Gain advanced engineering abilities to become a qualified engineer
  • Enhance subsequent education choices to transition into a university engineering qualification and career choices
  • Develop your analytical problem-solving skills
  • Identify the key parameters and their effect on system behaviour by solving ordinary differentiation equations (ODEs)
  • Visual and interactive job-relevant learning experience of calculus and advanced algebra using MATLAB to find analytical/numerical solutions expeditiously
  • Develop the capability for applying MATLAB as an interactive mathematical analysis tool to support engineering and scientific applications
  • Apply mathematical modelling using MATLAB/SIMULINK for practical & complex engineering problems
  • Demonstrate practical applications of the various mathematical concepts and the associated MATLAB operations to various engineering application areas, e.g. thermodynamics; fluid mechanics; probability and statistical analysis in project management and maintenance, etc

Requirements of the course

This course requires both on-campus practical and theory classes; and connectivity to learning management systems for self-paced study. 


On-campus practical and theory classes:
For 3 hours every week, you will need to attend workshops and lectures on-campus. 



Connectivity to learning management systems for self-paced study:
Once enrolled, you will receive information about how to login to our eCampus. Your study will include 6 to 8 hours a week using Blackboard, where you will access learning content, assignments, lesson plans and pre-reading for classes, at your place of choice, on or off-campus. To access the full suite of software activities, you will need to use College computers at Munster campus.


Engineering study pathways that lead to jobs of the future

Are you ready to take the next step in your career?

This skill set is one of three made of units from the MEM50212 Diploma of Engineering - Technical. SM TAFE delivers these skill sets in tandem with the diploma qualification each semester, so that workers seeking to specialise in mechanical or electrical engineering can reach their study goals flexibly. 

You can choose to study one or all the skill sets from the diploma, but we recommend you enrol into the Diploma if you plan to study all the skill sets and wish to apply for a VET Student Loan

Students should have completed their WACE General or ATAR (Minimum C Grades) or have year 12 equivalent to study this course.

You may be eligible to apply without Year 12 completion, for more information on entry requirements, please use the enquiry form at the end of this page.

Students will need to have studied the unit MEM23004A - Apply technical mathematics prior to undertaking this skill set.

For more information, visit the Applied Engineering and Mathematics skill set page.

This skill set forms part of MEM60112 Advanced Diploma of Engineering, which provides pathways towards university entry requirements.
