The aim of technical mathematics is to complete the mathematical education received by a student during the basic courses of mathematics, make him able to perform graduate studies, and to equip a student with the mathematical knowledge needed for demanding tasks where expertise and an ability to design complicated engineering systems is required.
The assessment of student’s own learning 1 h is included in contact lessons.
Prerequisites / Recommended Optional Courses
The obligatory courses of Mathematics.
This module is designed to be studied parallel to Advanced Professional Studies and consist of three courses. The courses are of equal contents in each study programme. The student may also choose parts of the module. Courses are:
Advanced Analysis, Integral Transforms and Vector Analysis
Recommended or Required Reading and Other Learning Resources/Tools
Kreyszig, E: "Advanced Engineering Mathematics", John Wiley & Sons; the material prepared by the lecturer.
Mode of Delivery / Planned Learning Activities and Teaching Methods
The basics of learning constitutes of lectures where the theory is explained and examples are given. An essential ingredient of learning, however, consists of exercises which are gone through during the lectures, and independent homework performed by the student. A mere attending the lectures and listening to the lecturer is not sufficient for proper learning. In practice, an independent pondering of the contents of the course becomes best realized when a student solves independently, at home, the problems given by the lecturer. Solutions to the problems are given during the lectures.
Grade 1: The student knows those subjects of the course, which are necessary for the forthcoming studies and working life.
Grade 3: The student is well-abled to utilize the course contents.
Grade 5: The student is able to apply creatively the contents of the course.
See for example the description of the course Advanced Analysis.
