Course Brief

Unit Abstract

The mathematics that is delivered in this unit is that which is directly applicable to the engineering industry, and it will help to increase students’ knowledge of the broad underlying principles within this discipline.

The aim of this unit is to develop students’ skills in the mathematical principles and theories that underpin the engineering curriculum. Students will be introduced to mathematical methods and statistical techniques in order to analyse and solve problems within an engineering context.

On successful completion of this unit students will be able to employ mathematical methods within a variety of contextualised examples, interpret data using statistical techniques, and use analytical and computational methods to evaluate and solve engineering problems.


  • This course is offered in 45 hours.
  • BTEC Higher National Diploma (HND) in Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering)

    The main aims of the HND in Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) are to:

    • Prepare students for a range of technical, professional and management career disciplines in Electrical and Electronic Engineering by providing specialised studies which are directly relevant to individual occupations and professions in which students are currently working or in which they intend to seek employment.
    • Enable students to make an immediate contribution in employment in the Electrical and Electronics sector.
    • Provide students with flexibility, knowledge, skills, understanding and motivation as a basis for progression to graduate and postgraduate studies.
    • Develop a range of skills and techniques, personal qualities and attitudes essential for successful performance in working life.

    Graduates of this HND Programme with a good grade profile will be able to access directly the final year of the University of Greenwich's BEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology at SBCS, Champs Fleurs campus.
