BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for 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.
This course will be delivered 100% in-person at the BCIT Burnaby campus. Please check the Learning Hub-D2L two days after registration. ELEX 7021 is a CO-REQUISITE for this course and MUST be taken at the same time. Please contact Katie Howard at email@example.com or (604) 432-8237 for more information or to be placed on the waitlist if the course is full. Note: BCIT reserves the right to cancel courses. In the event of a Part-time Studies course cancellation, you will be notified at least two business days prior to the course start. Please ensure that your contact information is current.
This course offering is in progress. Please check back next term, subscribe to receive email updates or

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Outline the fundamental mathematical principles of single and multiple integrals and single, multiple and partial derivatives necessary for engineering analysis.
Formulate the initial value and boundary value problems of differential equation theory.
Model practical engineering problems such as forced oscillations, resonance, population growth, fluid flow, etc… using differential equations.
Investigate the properties of solutions and the effect of parameters on first, second and higher order differential equations.
Formulate the partial differential equation problem.
