This subject consists of two parts: multivariate calculus and an introduction to statistics. The mathematical part develops the mathematical skills required for mathematical modelling of systems involving more than one independent variable. The statistics part is an introduction to descriptive statistics, statistical inference and simple linear regression. Topics include linear algebra, solutions to sets of equations resulting from particular problems, eigenvectors and eigenvalues, partial derivatives, optimisation, multiple integrals and their applications, and probability with a focus on the determination of the reliability of a system of components in various engineering contexts.
