Advanced Mathematics and Engineering Calculus skill set

State ID: GAB95

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.

Dates in 2021:

Semester 1 workshop and lectures: Tuesdays weekly 5pm to 8pm, from 2 February to Tuesday 22 June 2021

Requirements of the course

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