Units & Overview
    Develops knowledge and skills in mathematical logic, circular function, complex numbers and vectors. It provides an extension into circular functions and differential calculus including anti-derivatives and differential equations and investigates applications particularly for use in other engineering areas, such as kinematics.
Designed to provide skills in data analysis and statistical processes as applied to business and basic business computations and techniques.
A fundamental understanding of chemistry is relevant to many of the tasks encountered by professional engineers. Topics covered include atomic theory of matter, chemical periodicity, and ionic, covalent and metallic bonding. Practical exercises are illustrative of the theory component and provide experience in laboratory techniques and laboratory OHSE practices.
Introduces software development and design using MATLAB, including data types and variables, structured programming, M-files and functions, numerical errors and uncertainty and the programming of numerical techniques.
Allows students to explore the fundamental concepts and techniques required for first year engineering courses in the areas of vector algebra and geometry, linear algebra and matrix operations, Eigen-values and Eigen-vectors, differential and integral calculus, sequences and series, ordinary differential equations and boundary value problems, multivariable calculus and partial derivatives.
Introduces students to the use of IT in modern engineering practice. Students work in small teams to develop a mobile application that meets a contemporary need in engineering.
Extends the students’ base knowledge into the following areas: professions, design and analysis, communication, ethics and economics. Students investigate, explore and discuss engineering concepts and issues, and solve quantitative and qualitative problems in class.
Focuses on the behaviour of functions and examines some of their applications to the real world.
Introduces programming fundamentals and the Python language to students. Provides a foundational understanding of program design and implementation of algorithms to solve simple problems.
Provides an introduction to the concepts of database design and usage and the related issues of data management. Students develop skills in planning, designing, and implementing a data model using an enterprise-scale relational database system (Oracle).
Enables students to develop an understanding of how organisations are managed and apply analytical skills to a range of managerial and organisational issues.
Relates key principles of physics to engineering and technology, and shows how physics, including quantum and nano-science, creates useful new technologies. The practical component develops measurement, analysis, and communication skills.
