Department: BSc in Electro-Mechanical Engineering
Module Description: This module provides an introduction to the theory, solution and application of ordinary differential equations. Topics discussed in the module include methods of solving first-order differential equations, existence and uniqueness theorems, second-order linear equations, higher-order linear equations and systems of equations. The relationship between differential equations and linear algebra is emphasized in this module.
