Faculties and centres
Fundamentals of Mathematics in Engineering II is a basic subject in the Civil Engineering Degree. The subject belongs to the first course, consists of 6 credits ECTS (European Credit Transfer System), and will take place in the second semester (27 January – 20 May, 2016).
Besides this subject, there are three more mathematical subjects in the Civil Engineering Degree: Fundamentals of Mathematics in Engineering I, Fundamentals of Mathematics in Engineering III, and Broad Mathematics.
General Competences (CG)
The Fundamentals of Mathematics in Engineering II subject aims at introducing the basic technics and concepts of Real Multivariable Differential Calculus. It is focused on an eminently practical perspective, exploring the use and applications of the topic. Moreover, we will study an introduction of Vectorial Analysis and Differential Geometry of plane curves.
The knowledge of this topic will improve the understanding of other subjects in the Civil Engineering Degree, and will enable the study of more advanced mathematics in the future. Besides, studying mathematics contribute to the development of the scientific methodology, which is based in logical deduction.
