The course “Maths for Engineering” was delivered by Dr John Longley, Senior Lecturer of the Department of Engineering from the University of Cambridge. Different areas in mathematics were covered in the course, including vector analysis, matrix algebra, numerical solutions and quadrature, introduction to engineering statistics, as well as data analysis for engineers, which could help to improve students’ calculation skills.
The programme was also a window on study life at Girton College and the University of Cambridge. Students had the opportunity to glimpse the Cambridge experience and to connect with students on the other side of the world during discussion night and a walking tour. The cultural exchange inspired our students to further explore the United Kingdom in the future.
