This specialization was developed for engineering students to self-study engineering mathematics. We expect students are already familiar with single variable calculus and computer programming. Students will learn matrix algebra, differential equations, vector calculus and numerical methods. MATLAB programming will be taught.
What You Will Learn:
- How to work with matrices and understand some fundamental concepts from linear algebra.
- How to solve differential equations and apply them to model physical phenomena.
- How to extend single variable calculus to three dimensions and differentiate and integrate scalar and vector fields.
- How to analyze basic numerical techniques and write scientific computation programs in MATLAB.
Mathematics for Engineers: The Capstone Course provides a capstone project for students who are completing the Mathematics for Engineers specialization. Students will first learn some basic concepts in computational fluid dynamics, and then apply these concepts to compute the fluid flow around a cylinder. Access to MATLAB online [...]
Vector Calculus for Engineers covers both basic theory and applications. In the first week we learn about scalar and vector fields, in the second week about differentiating fields, in the third week about multidimensional integration and curvilinear coordinate systems. The fourth week covers line and surface integrals, [...]
