Students entering tertiary studies in engineering and surveying require mathematical skills in a wide range of areas and experience in applying these skills to problem solving in engineering contexts. In particular, the techniques of calculus, matrices, and vectors are fundamental for modelling and analysis in a wide range of applications. This course further develops the skills and understanding of the mathematical concepts which underpin the investigative tools used in engineering and surveying. This course provides opportunity for students to extend their mastery of these topics and explore applications in engineering and surveying.
This course builds on the Queensland Mathematics B (Mathematical Methods) content and further develops algebra, function, trigonometric, exponential, logarithm and graphing competencies, and introduces matrices, vectors and calculus. Emphasis is placed on developing strong skills in these areas within an engineering context and on exploring and applying these skills to a range of engineering and surveying applications.
Students are advised to undertake an online diagnostic test on assumed knowledge prior to 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 ENM1600.
