To develop mathematical knowledge, understanding and skills in fundamental topics of mathematics so that students can later build on these to describe, model, analyse and evaluate civil and general engineering problems using a range of mathematical techniques and appropriate software for calculations (Matlab).
Theory, calculation methodologies and applications are delivered in lectures, exercise classes and discipline tutorial groups. Discipline skills are assessed in classroom tests (to facilitate written feedback) and the wider learning outcomes of the module area ssessed in the final closedbook examination.
