Mathematics and Computing 1
This module develops key mathematical and computational skills relevant to the wider mechanical engineering programme.
Topics include vector algebra, real analysis, limits, curve sketching, series, applications of integration, complex analysis, functions of more than one variable, matrix algebra, second order ordinary differential equations, and vector calculus . Practical implementation through programming is studied to solve problems selected from the topic areas. These skills are in support of ME1, ME2, ME3 and ME4 modules.
