General course objectives:

The course content is the mathematical basis for a broad range of technical fields and also provides a starting point for further studies in mathematics and applied mathematics. The dominating theme of the course is linearity. The goal is to give students the ability to employ fundamental tools of mathematics in theoretical studies as well as in applied projects. The use of modern computer software supports both of these aspects.

Learning objectives:

A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

The course is a two-semester course for students following one of the preliminary four-semester programs:
Scheme A for the programs Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology, Design and Innovation, Environmental Engineering, Medicine & Technology and Human Life Science Engineering.
Scheme B for the programs Architectural Engineering, Civil Engineering, Earth and Space Physics and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Physics and Nanotechnology.
Scheme C for the programs Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Technology, Network Technology and IT, Software Technology and Strategic Analysis and Systems Design.

Green challenge participation:

Please contact the teacher for information on whether this course gives the student the opportunity to prepare a project that may participate in DTU´s Study Conference on sustainability, climate technology, and the environment (GRØN DYST). More infor http://www.groendyst.dtu.dk/english
