Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will have broadened their technical and methodological knowledge of mathematics with a view to a wider field of application in mechanical engineering/process engineering.
They will understand the importance of coordinate transformations and will be able to apply them in a specific field, e.g. in the strength of materials field.
Students will be able to handle complex numbers and have insight into a variety of applications, e.g. in electrical engineering. Students will be able to convert mathematical methods in the context of linear algebra and analysis involving functions with multiple variables and implement them using a mathematical tool.
