Mathematics Module in Engineering – “A Must”

In Mathematics classes across the world, one of the most common thing one will here students mumble under their breaths is “When are we ever going to need this in real life?”

Mathematics is the language of physical science and engineering. All engineering fields require a sting grasp of Mathematics, Engineering disciplines like electrical, mechanical, software and civil engineering all require very good math skills. Mathematics and science are integral part of engineering. Science teaches us about the laws of the natural world and Mathematics helps us to establish relationship among different quantities. Both subjects are of paramount importance if anyone wants to be a real engineer. Students must build a very strong understanding of science and Mathematics because these are the foundation upon which engineering is based.

Awareness of science, technology, engineering and Mathematics (STEM) is crucial because engineering is all about applying science and Mathematics practically to come up with solutions to problems we face in our daily lives.

Mathematics has the power to comfort us and also destroy us. The only important question that remains is-who handles it and how because Mathematics is too hot to handle and too cold to hold. Mathematics is more than tool for solving problems. It imparts a student the art of reading, understanding and analyzing a problem before coming up with solutions. All these skills are vital when it comes to engineering.

In truth, all the greatest engineering accomplishments and inventions of 20th century were feats of Mathematics. This Subject help engineers achieve pure precisions when building or adjusting something. It is thus not surprising that Mathematics is one of the main modules in all of the engineering courses all over the world.

Mathematics really is the corner stone of all engineering. Without it bridges would collapse under tension, light bulbs might blow up each time we flip a switch in our house and our car brakes would only work some of the time.
