Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

You will be required to have completed sufficient undergraduate mathematics, and have achieved results of a suitable standard. Assessment of these criteria is to be done by the Course Co-ordinator.

Course Description

This course is an extension of earlier undergraduate work into areas of advanced applied mathematics that are of current relevance in science and engineering. Where possible you will be introduced to the use of advanced mathematical software. This course comprises three separate components to be taken over two semesters.

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

You will develop an ability to analyse and solve problems relating to a wide range of applications.

As for ’Capability Development’

Overview of Learning Activities

Students attend 2 hours per week per component lectures during which they will be exposed to the theory and concepts as outlined in the objectives above. Where appropriate, students will be given instruction in software packages in the computer laboratory.

Overview of Learning Resources

You will be able to consult lecturers outside class times and will have extensive access to computer laboratories.

Overview of Assessment

Each component will be assessed by an examination counting between 50% and 70% with the rest of the assessment coming from assignment/project work. Details of the assessment will be given in the first lecture of each component. the final grade in the course is based on the average of the three component results. However, at least a minimal level of performance in each component must be achieved in order that a pass (or higher grade) be awarded.
