An online unit provided by the University of South Australia and Open Universities Australia, Engineering Modelling is a capstone unit of engineering mathematics, a key element of the Associate Degree in Engineering. This unit builds on previously acquired knowledge and challenges you to further develop your problem-solving skills across a range of modules covering mathematics, MATLAB, teamwork and writing skills.
Successful completion of this unit requires mastery of a range of mathematical techniques, including differential and integral calculus of functions with two or more variables, parameterised curves in 2D and 3D space, and statistical inference for proportions and means applied to engineering situations. Other topics you will study include probability models, significance tests and linear regression.
This unit is delivered through a variety of teaching resources and materials, including podcasts, e-portfolios, audio/video conferencing, blogs, web links and online assignment submission. The unit is assessed via a combination of exercises, projects and an invigilated exam.

Engineering Modelling provides a solid foundation in a range of mathematical techniques that can play a crucial role in a range of job roles in the engineering industry. You will become fluent in using MATLAB, a high-level language and interactive environment used by millions of engineers and scientists all over the world. Experience in using MATLAB is a highly desirable skill for many employers.
Engineering Modelling forms part of the Associate Degree in Engineering, a course that helps you to understand the principles and practice of engineering, in addition to acquiring the knowledge and skills to further your career in this rich and challenging industry. You will combine theoretical work with developing practical skills based on real-world engineering issues, with a focus on sustainable solutions and the impact of conventional and new materials and processes on a range of industry sectors.
Success in this course opens the door to a variety of career options in fields such as mining and resources, civil infrastructure, defence, environmental engineering and construction. Popular job roles include technologist, managing officer, specialist technician and designer.
