Mathematics is an essential tool in matters of engineering. Moreover, besides the fact that the acquired abilities are necessary for the applications in related disciplines, mathematics is an ideal tool in developing critical thinking and in setting problems in a clear and comprehensive way.

The chapter on complex numbers treats the different forms we can write a complex number together with their basic operations.
The next part focuses on different kinds of vector calculations and some of its applications in related engineering disciplines.
Coordinate transformations and quadratic curves are discussed in plane geometry.
Finally, the part of analyses treats concepts as continuity, derivatives and differentials, indefinite and definate integrals. These concepts are applied in function investigation and in optimalization problems. Basic methods of integration are developed.

Final competences in mathematics and logical education from high school.

Final Objectives
The student should be able to analyse and solve practical problems by linking them to the course curriculum.
An ability to interpret results and to state them in the right context is expected, together with the ability of detecting errors in results and fallacies in logical reasoning.
