Engineering Maths 1A (H1033)

15 credits, Level 4

Autumn teaching

The Engineering Maths 1A module is the first of two modules in Year 1, with Engineering Maths 1B taking place in the Spring semester. It builds on mathematics studied at GCSE and A level, or equivalent, and is mostly revision of familiar topics, though for a few students some of the material will be new. The aim of the module is to consolidate mathematical understanding and technical proficiency in a range of areas, in order to form a sound basis for the mathematics relating to engineering and physical processes in the modules to come.

Teaching and assessment

We’re currently reviewing teaching and assessment of our modules in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’ll publish the latest information as soon as possible.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 150 hours of work. This breaks down into about 53 hours of contact time and about 97 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

This module is running in the academic year 2020/21. We also plan to offer it in future academic years. However, there may be changes to this module in response to COVID-19, or due to staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.

It may not be possible to take some module combinations due to timetabling constraints. The structure of some courses means that the modules you choose first may determine whether later modules are core or optional.
