Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will have a basic technical and methodological command of mathematics in order to understand engineering methods. They will be familiar with vector calculus and its applications to problems in geometry and mechanics. They will be able to carry out simple calculations using the methods of linear algebra and analysis with regard to applications in mechanical engineering/process technology. Students will be able to solve simple mathematical problems using a software tool.
