What You Will Study

Advanced Mathematics Modules

There are a total of three Advanced Mathematics modules, which must be taken sequentially as shown in the table below. Students will complete one module per semester. Assessment for the modules consists of quizzes, a mid-semester test and a formal examination at the end of each semester.

Module Code Module Name Total Hours
MS801M Advanced Mathematics 1
This module aims to provide polytechnic graduates with sound foundation in calculus essential for studies in engineering courses at university level. Topics include mathematical induction, functions and their graphs, limits and continuity of functions, differentiation, integration and its geometrical applications, polar coordinates and parametric equations, indeterminate forms, improper integrals and complex numbers.

Physics

Assessment for the module consists of assignments, a mid-semester test and a formal examination at the end of the semester.

Module Code Module Name Total Hours
MS864M Physics
This module provides the students with a good foundation in physics which is essential for pursuing degree courses in the universities. Topics covered include physical quantities and units, kinematics, dynamics, oscillations, waves, electricity, magnetism and electromagnetism. The extensive use of vectors and calculus in developing concepts allows the students to see how mathematics is used as a concise language of Physics.
