Students entering tertiary studies in engineering and surveying require expertise in mathematics and problem solving. This course will provide students with basic mathematical competencies for tertiary studies in engineering and surveying.

This course integrates mathematical concepts to provide students with an introduction to the mathematical fundamentals required for engineering and surveying. Topics included are: basic algebra, functions and graphing, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions, geometry, vectors in two-dimensional space, matrices and an introduction to differentiation and integration.

Queensland Senior Secondary School Studies Maths A, or General Mathematics or equivalent assumed. Students are advised to undertake an online diagnostic test on assumed knowledge prior commencing the course. This test will advise students the areas which need to be revised to ensure satisfactory progression in the course. The results of the test may include recommendations for: further work (if required), or an alternative study plan, such as the Tertiary Preparation Program (Mathematics Level B course), to be completed prior to undertaking ENM1500.
