Description To develop a solid and instinctive understanding of the fundamental mathematical generalisations, associated methods and practical mathematical skills central to engineering problemsolving in the fields of electronic and mechanical engineering. To continue the students' development of their skills of analysing problems in a rational and methodical manner and their use of reasoning by analogy. A significant element of the T&L strategy is to motivate the relevance of the mathematical ideas by appropriate applications. The emphasis throughout is on student insight and understanding, not rigorous proof, and on communication of mathematical ideas in terms of diagrams, words, formulas and numbers, not formulas alone. However, some mathematical proofs are used as tools for developing logical and mathematical reasoning.  
Learning Outcomes 1. apply integration techniques to calculation of function transforms. 2. compute Fourier Series for various periodic functions. 3. use Fourier methods to explore realworld time signals. 4. Use Fourier Transform to analyse inputoutput relationships. 5. solve differential and difference equations using transform methods
