**Unit 002 Engineering Maths – Credit Value 15 Level 4 [M/615/1476]**

The mathematics that is delivered in this unit is that which is directly applicable to the engineering industry, and it will help to increase students’ knowledge of the broad underlying principles within this discipline.

The aim of this unit is to develop students’ skills in the mathematical principles and theories that underpin the engineering curriculum. Students will be introduced to mathematical methods and statistical techniques in order to analyse and solve problems within an engineering context.

On successful completion of this unit students will be able to employ mathematical methods within a variety of contextualised examples, interpret data using statistical techniques, and use analytical and computational methods to evaluate and solve engineering problems.

**Learning Outcomes**

By the end of this unit students will be able to:

- Identify the relevance of mathematical methods to a variety of conceptualised engineering examples.
- Investigate applications of statistical techniques to interpret, organise and present data by using appropriate computer software packages.
- Use analytical and computational methods for solving problems by relating sinusoidal wave and vector functions to their respective engineering applications.
- Examine how differential and integral calculus can be used to solve engineering problems.
