This course includes the study of first order differential equations, higher order linear differential equations; linear differential equations with constant coefficients; simultaneous linear differential equations; Laplace transforms; numerical methods, boundary value and initial value problems, qualitative analysis of solutions, and applications of differential equations.
This course introduces the concept of integration and its
application to some physical problems such as evaluation of areas, volumes of
revolution, force and work. The fundamental formulas and various techniques of
integration are taken up and applied to both single variable and multi-variable
functions. The course also includes tracing of function of two variables for a
better appreciation of the interpretation of the double and triple integral as
volume of a three dimensional region bounded by two or more surfaces.
The course includes moral issues
and decisions confronting individuals and organizations involved in
engineering. This subject will focus on the study of the code of ethics, conflict
of interest, safety and risk tradeoffs in design, confidentiality, behavior in
the workplace, intellectual property, patents, trade secrets, and contemporary
issues in engineering.
