Selected Advanced Topics in Mathematics and Technology with a Focus on Mathematical Problems


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


• must have extensive knowledge of relevant theory and methods within one or more selected areas of mathematics, and to a lesser degree, knowledge about one or more areas within engineering science 
• must have extensive knowledge about one or more applications of the theory and methods 
• must be able to understand, and to reflect scientifically over knowledge within mathematics and engineering science and to be able to identify mathematical and technological problems


• are able to independently to apply relevant mathematical theory and methods to identification, statement and analysis of technological problems 
• are able to communicate research based knowledge, and is able to discuss professional and scientific problems with peers both within mathematics and engineering science, as well as with non-specialists


• are able to independently to initiate and complete interdisciplinary development projects based on advanced mathematical modelling and methods from engineering science, and is able in that context, to professionally take charge of implementing derived models and methods 
• are able to independently to take charge of self-development and one’s own professional development and specialisation within mathematics and engineering science
