Engineering Mathematics 2

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Engineering Mathematics 2
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2018
Module code: E2201
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
5V+2U (7 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 2
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Written exam

Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
105 class hours (= 78.75 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 240 hours (equivalent to 8 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 161.25 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
Module coordinator:
Prof. Dr. Gerald Kroisandt
Dipl.-Math. Kerstin Webel

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to calculate complex numbers and complex functions and represent them on the complex plane. They will have acquired advanced knowledge of differential and integral calculus. They will be able to solve second order differential equations and thus, be able to analyze and calculate the fundamental time behavior of elementary and complex systems in different disciplines.
