Course Objectives:

The course is aimed to develop the basic Mathematical skills of engineering students that are imperative for effective understanding of engineering subjects. The topics introduced will serve as basic tools for specialized studies in many fields of engineering and technology.

Course Outline:

  1.  Matrices –To provide detailed of matrices which is applied for solving system of linear equations and useful in various fields of technology.

  2. Partial Derivatives – This course enables to provide an overview of partial derivatives and its applications which is used for solving optimization problems and concepts is needed in study of wave, heat equation of various orders and also in calculation of errors in various engineering subjects.

  3. Complex numbers – This course enables the students to learn the concept of imaginary numbers and gives awareness about algebra of complex numbers which helps in understanding of engineering subjects like electrical circuits, Electromagnetic wave theory, and complex analysis etc.

  4. Indeterminate forms and Taylor series- It helps the students to understand and apply the concept of existence of limits, indeterminate conditions, expansion of standard and non standard functions in series form.

  5. Successive Differentiation – To provide understanding of existence of n’th order derivative.

  6. Numerical methods and scilab: To build ability to solve numerically system of linear equations, algebraic and transcendental equations. To provide an overview of the experimental aspect of applied mathematics.
