Engineering Maths 2 SCQF Level 7

Develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to solve complex engineering problems.

Overview

Why take this course?

This is an Unit within Engineering Group Awards, may be part of other Group Awards, or can be taken as a stand alone HN Unit. The Unit provides learners with opportunities to develop knowledge, understanding and skills to solve problems involving trigonometric and hyperbolic functions and identities; to differentiate and integrate a wide range of functions and use differentiation and integration techniques to solve engineering problems.

This Unit is designed to develop the necessary mathematical skills required of learners seeking to use a Higher National Diploma in Engineering as an exit qualification for an Engineering workplace role or as a pathway to further studies in mathematics at an advanced level.
