Previous knowledge expected

Mathematical basic knowledge at least on good secondary-school level

Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

Students are familiar with the most important foundations of the higher engineering mathematics. They can solve certain first order differential equations (linear variable separable), as well as second-order differential equations (linear, with constant coefficients).
They know a number of applications, in particular the provision of downhill-lines in a landscape (natural path of the water) and the mathematical processing of the linear memory model in hydrology.
Furthermore, students can evaluate double integrals, know the most important applications and are capable of understanding to new coordinate systems.
Students are also familiar with the term of the matrix and control the most important operations of the matrix calculus.
