To enhance and extend previous mathematical knowledge, and the understanding of principles supporting general and civil engineering themes and to develop concepts facilitating innovative analytical solutions and application of more advanced techniques to treating general and civil engineering problems.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Theory, calculation methodologies and applications are delivered in large lectures and exercise classes, with practice and general and civil engineering context established in tutorial groups where oral feedback is given. Discipline skills are assessed in a classroom test (to facilitate written feedback) and the wider learning outcomes of the module are assessed in the final closed-book examination.
