This subject introduces important mathematical methods required in engineering such as manipulating vector differential operators, computing multiple integrals and using integral theorems. A range of ordinary and partial differential equations are solved by a variety of methods and their solution behaviour is interpreted. The subject also introduces sequences and series including the concepts of convergence and divergence.
Topics include: Vector calculus, including Gauss’ and Stokes’ Theorems; sequences and series; Fourier series, Laplace transforms; systems of homogeneous ordinary differential equations, including phase plane and linearization for nonlinear systems; second order partial differential equations and separation of variables.
At the completion of this subject, students should be able to
Two or three written assignments due at regular intervals during semester amounting to a total of up to 40 pages (15%), a 45 minute written test held mid-semester and a 3-hour written examination in the examination period (75%).

In addition to learning specific mathematical skills, students will have the opportunity to develop generic skills that will assist them in any career path. These include:
Students enrolled in the BSc (new degree only) will receive science credit for the completion of this subject.
Note for BSc (new degree) students: This subject is intended only for students pursuing an Engineering Systems major, who do not wish to take any further study in Mathematics and Statistics or Physics. Other students, including those wanting to supplement their Engineering Systems major with further study in Mathematics and Statistics or Physics, should seek advice.
Students undertaking this subject are required to regularly use computers with MATLAB installed.
Students who have completed MAST20009 Vector Calculus and need to satisfy prerequisites for Engineering Systems majors, should enrol in MAST30023 Differential Equations for Engineers instead of MAST20029 Engineering Mathematics.
Please note that Dr Steven Carnie coordinates this subject in Summer Semester and all queries should be directed to him during the Summer Semester.
