Choose one of

300743Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary
200237Mathematics for Engineers 1

Note: All students are required to enrol in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary first and undertake a readiness test at the beginning of their study.

This test will be conducted at the beginning of the first semester of enrolment and the result will determine whether a student will remain in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary or be transferred by the School to 200237 Mathematics for Engineers 1.

The students who finish 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary will then use this unit as an elective.
