GENG4407 Advanced Engineering Mathematics
- 6 points
If this unit does not have an online alternative, then students who are presently unable to enter Western Australia and whose studies would be delayed by an inability to complete this unit, should contact the unit coordinator (details given on this page) to ascertain, on an individual case-by-case basis, if alternate arrangements can be made to support their study in this unit.
Availability Location Mode Semester 1 UWA (Perth) Face to face Predominantly face-to-face. On campus attendance required to complete this unit. May have accompanying resources online. Semester 1 UWA (Perth) Online timetabled 100% Online Unit. NO campus face-to-face attendance is required to complete this unit. All study requirements are online only. Unit includes some synchronous components, with a requirement for students to participate online at specific times.
- 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.
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) in-class assessments and (2) final 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.

- Unit rules
- enrolment in the Master of Professional Engineering (Chemical Engineering specialisation, Electrical and Electronic Engineering specialisation or Environmental Engineering specialisation); for pre-2012 courses: (MATH2020 Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra and MATH2209 Calculus and Probability) or MATH2040 Engineering Mathematics or MATH1002 Mathematical Methods 2
- Advisable prior study:
- MATH1002 Mathematical Methods 2
- ELEC3303 Electromagnetic Theory and MATH2501 Mathematical Methods 3
- Contact hours
- lectures: 2 hours per week; practical classes: 2 hours per week; labs: 3 hours per week
- 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.
- Unit readings, including any essential textbooks, are listed in the unit outline for each unit one week prior the commencement of study. The unit outline will be available via the LMS and the UWA Handbook. Reading lists and essential textbooks are subject to change each semester. Essential textbooks can be purchased from the commercial vendors to secure the best deal. The Student Guild can provide assistance on where to purchase books if required. Books can be purchased second hand at the Guild Secondhand bookshop (second floor, Guild Village), which is located on campus. Copies of textbooks and other readings will be made available for students to access from the Library, online wherever possible as well as in print.
