Mathematics for Engineers Specialization
Learn the mathematics needed to become an engineer. Study matrix algebra, differential equations, vector calculus, numerical methods and complete a capstone project.
What you will learn
How to work with matrices and understand some fundamental concepts from linear algebra.
How to solve differential equations and apply them to model physical phenomena.
How to extend single variable calculus to three dimensions and differentiate and integrate scalar and vector fields.
How to analyze basic numerical techniques and write scientific computation programs in MATLAB.
Skills you will gain
About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Learners will write MATLAB programs to solve the computational fluid dynamics problem of the flow around a cylinder. At the end of the "Mathematics for Engineers: The Capstone Course", learners will be able to compute the iconic Kármán vortex street. To watch a video of the Kármán vortex street, you can visit the following link: https://youtu.be/FlM1de9Sxh0
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
