MA6251                                                 MATHEMATICS – II                                                


  • To make the student acquire sound knowledge of techniques in solving ordinary differential equations that model engineering problems.
  • To acquaint the student with the concepts of vector calculus, needed for problems in all engineering disciplines.
  • To develop an understanding of the standard techniques of complex variable theory so as to enable  the  student  to  apply  them  with  confidence,  in  application  areas  such  as  heat conduction, elasticity, fluid dynamics and flow the of electric current.
  • To make the student appreciate   the purpose of using transforms to create a new domain in which it is easier to handle the problem that is being investigated.
