GENG4407 Advanced Engineering Mathematics
- 6 points
|Semester 1||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
- This unit develops general theory in electromagnetism and fluid mechanics, both incorporating vector calculus; illustrates the theory using applications, for example in communications, consumer electronics, environmental waters and oceanography; and introduces practical techniques for solving problems in electromagnetism and fluid mechanics.
- Students are able to (1) communicate mathematical arguments and solutions to problems; (2) solve problems using a mathematical approach and logical thinking skills; (3) demonstrate mastery of essential techniques used in mathematical problem solving; and (4) explain and apply key mathematical concepts and techniques underpinning engineering and science, with an emphasis on fluid mechanics and electromagnetism.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) in-semester tests; (2) laboratories; and (3) an examination. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is only available in this unit in the case of a student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.

- The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
