In a nutshell

A Personal Learning Account is a new initiative from the Welsh Government. The initiative will offer people the chance to access free, part-time courses that offer flexible and convenient learning around their existing lifestyle.

The mathematics that is delivered in this unit is that which is directly applicable to the engineering industry, and it will help to increase students’ knowledge of the broad underlying principles within this discipline.

The aim of this unit is to develop students’ skills in the mathematical principles and theories that underpin the engineering curriculum. Students will be introduced to mathematical methods and statistical techniques in order to analyse and solve problems within an engineering context.

On successful completion of this unit students will be able to employ mathematical methods within a variety of contextualised examples, interpret data using statistical techniques, and use analytical and computational methods to evaluate and solve engineering problems

This course is for...

... anyone aged 19 +, living in Wales, employed, and earning less than £29,534 per year

... anyone that would like to improve your Maths skills at Level 4

... anyone who would like to complete a HNC in Engineering

... anyone with a keen interest in Maths

Course content

As part of this course, you will:

  • Identify the relevance of mathematical methods to a variety of conceptualised engineering examples.
  • Investigate applications of statistical techniques to interpret, organise and present data.
  • Use analytical and computational methods for solving problems by relating sinusoidal wave and vector functions to their respective engineering applications.
  • Examine how differential and integral calculus can be used to solve engineering problems.

Entry Requirements

You will need a minimum of a Level 3 Technical qualification e.g. BTEC L3 in Engineering which contains Maths units, or relevant A Levels including Maths. Relevant industry experience will also be considered alongside an entrance assessment for mature learners.

Additional information

After completing this Unit you can progress to the full HNC in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering.
