Applied Engineering Mathematics Skill Set

State ID: GAA30

This skill set is is part of the MEM50212 Diploma of Engineering - Technical, a nationally recognised qualification. Students will gain an understanding of using mathematics as a tool to analyse practical problems. This course will also provide a solid foundation for physics and other disciplines.

This course requires approximately 6 to 8 hours a week online study using our a Blackboard Learning Management System coupled with an additional 3 hours a week expected attendance at campus for workshops.

Topics will include: Identifying common engineering materials by their principal properties, Select materials for specific applications, Verify selected material as fit for purpose, Determine stresses in simple structures and mechanical components, Verify stress levels using appropriate reference material, Solve engineering problems involving algebraic expressions with one independent variable, Use trigonometry to solve practical problems, Solve quadratic equations, Statics, Dynamics, motion and rotation.

  • MEM30007A Select common engineering materials
  • MEM30006A Calculate stresses in simple structures
  • MEM30012A Apply mathematical techniques in a manufacturing, engineering or related environment
  • MEM23109A Apply engineering mechanics principles
  • MEM23004A Apply technical mathematics

Upcoming dates:

  • Commencing April, Term 2, 2020
  • Commencing July, Term 3, 2020
    • Every Friday 5pm - 8pm from 24 July to 11 December 2020

Please note, the allocated three hours per week is only for the workshop and lectures and the remaining study has to be done using our LMS system i.e. Backboard. Blackboard is where lecturers will populate their learning content, assignments and lesson plans. It is an expectation that students spend 6 to 8 hours of study time every week outside class hours/skillset.

Delivery location, important dates and study options

This course will be offered with a blended, flexible delivery model to enable social distancing measures to be undertaken during the COVID-19 pandemic. This approach may include a mix of online and classroom based delivery, as well as practical and work experience placements. Lecturers will provide specific instructions to their student groups on how training will be undertaken.

This course is available for study starting term 2 and term 3 in 2020 with a mix of online study and attendance at Munster campus for workshops. 

This skill set is part of the MEM50212 Diploma of Engineering - Technical.
