Multivariable Calculus and Dynamic Systems ELEX 7020

Electrical and Computer Engineering Course

International Fees

International fees are typically three times the amount of domestic fees. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

This course begins with a review of advanced calculus concepts such as functions, limits, continuity, sequences, derivatives and integrals. Partial derivatives, multiple integrals and their applications are then introduced. Ordinary differential equations are covered including first, second and higher order linear differential equations, with an emphasis on modeling engineering systems in the electrical, mechanical, heat transfer, fluid mechanics and control systems fields. Dynamic systems (time as the independent variable) are emphasized throughout the course.

Prerequisite(s)

  • No prerequisites are required for this course.
