Level 3 - Engineering Technician

Mathematics 1

Course Overview

Mathematics is a subject of enormous importance to the education of engineers in all disciplines, metallurgy and casting.  The definition and solution of engineering problems relies upon the ability of the engineer to represent systems and their behaviour in mathematical terms, which in turn depends upon the use of various mathematical tools.

This module introduces the relevant Methematical concepts to equip the engineer with subject knowledge and how this can be applied to the technical module areas in the Metallurgy and Casting Programme.

This module will help your engineers to identify the application of algebraic laws and applying algebraic manipulation techniques to the solution of problems involving algebraic functions, formulae and graphs.


Your engineer will understand how to apply trigonometric rations, trigonometric techniques and graphical methods to solve simple problems involving areas, volumes and sinusoidal functions.

Also, when to apply statistical methods together, manipulate and display scientific and metallurgical data together with identifying and applying the elementary rules of calculus arithmetic to solve problems that involve differentiaton.


Course Content

Students will be supported throughout their distance/blended learning programme via their designated Lead Academic, web-conferencing facilities, workshops and their in-house Industrial Mentor.


Subject areas are:

Algebraic laws and algebraic manipulation techniques

Trigonometric techniques and graphical methods

Statistical methods

Calculus arithmetic, differentiation and integration

Entry Level

Students will be in full time employment within the industry some knowledge and experience of metallurgy processes.


Functional Skills in Mathematics and English (Level 2)

To have undertaken Metallurgical Science 1 & 2 and Research Methods and Independent Study Modules or equivalent covering all the elements set out in the Course Modules.

Students will provide a copy of their CV, qualifications and any other training certificates together with a letter of application explaining how the course will benefit them and their future career goals.  This information, along with visits to the workplace will be assessed by our Admissions Team.
