Course Aims

This course aims to develop a basic understanding of a range of mathematics tools with emphasis on engineering applications in order to support later courses in mechanical and electronic themes. It is intended for students to solve some statistical problems and ordinary differential equations by analytical methods. Fourier series and Laplace transforms are also introduced. The course will help students develop skills and  the ability to think quantitatively and analyse problems critically.
