Pre-requisites: N/A
This module aims to equip students with advanced mathematical tools common to engineering applications; specifically, this module demonstrates to students the physical origin of applied mathematics and enables them to understand the basic concepts in vector analysis, complex functions and Laplace transforms. This module thereby trains students to think logically and independently of given problems in practice and solve them with advanced mathematical tools.
Method of teaching and learning 
A Acquire the basic concepts in complex functions and their integrals.

B Understand Laplace transforms and their properties and apply them for the solutions of ordinary differential equations.

C Understand power series methods and their theoretical basis and apply them for the solutions of ordinary differential equations.

D Be able to solve problems by establishing appropriate mathematical models using the most relevant techniques.

E Have an appreciation of the importance of mathematics to engineering and science.
Method of teaching and learning 
This module will be delivered by a combination of formal lectures, problem-solving tutorials and a revision seminar.
