This is an intensive course with high volumes of material. Students who do not have excellent numerical skills and fundamentals of maths and physics must be aware that this is a rapid revision course in preparation for the 2-hour exam on the final day. 12 weeks of pre-study is recommended in preparation for this course, the material is usually made available once you have enrolled.

This course generally runs concurrently with the general engineering science I and it is recommended that both courses are taken at the same time.
