Course Brief

The understanding of more advanced mathematics is important within an engineering curriculum to support and broaden abilities within the applied subjects at the core of all engineering programmes. Students are introduced to additional topics that will be relevant to them as they progress to the next level of their studies, advancing their knowledge of the underpinning mathematics gained in Unit 2: Engineering Maths.

The unit will prepare students to analyse and model engineering situations using mathematical techniques. Among the topics included in this unit are: number theory, complex numbers, matrix theory, linear equations, numerical integration,numerical differentiation, and graphical representations of curves for estimation within an engineering context. Finally, students will expand their knowledge of
calculus to discover how to model and solve engineering problems using first and second order differential equations.

On successful completion of this unit students will be able to use applications of number theory in practical engineering situations, solve systems of linear equations relevant to engineering applications using matrix methods, approximate solutions of contextualised examples with graphical and numerical methods, and review models of engineering systems using ordinary differential equations.

  • BTEC Higher National Diploma (HND) in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering)

    The Pearson BTEC Higher National Diploma (HND) in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) programme will develop students into highly trained, competent professionals, who are able to meet the demands of employers in the various engineering sectors. This qualification also serves as the next step for students completing the SBCS Matriculation to HND (Engineering) programme and are interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree programme.


    Why choose the HND in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering)?

    • Recognition: This is an Internationally recognized qualification, recognized in more than 70 countries worldwide.
    • Final Year Entry: Graduates of this programme gain direct access to the final year of an undergraduate degree programme such as the University of Greenwich BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering programme.
    • Career focused: The curriculum was developed to meet the needs of the current marketplace after consultation with employers, students, and professional bodies.
    • Practical hands-on training: Emphasis is placed on practical training and the application of the knowledge taught.

    Why study Mechanical Engineering at SBCS?

    • Instructors are certified, highly skilled and experienced practitioners who bring their knowledge and work experience to the classroom.
    • Modern, fully equipped labs. You learn using the same equipment you will encounter in the field.
    • Convenient class schedules. Work, Earn and Study at the same time. Classes are offered on a part-time basis, which allows working individuals to balance their work and educational needs.
