Engineering maths

This course is designed for anyone working in a fabrication or engineering environment looking to refresh their learning, consolidate knowledge or further develop skills in engineering related maths concepts. Microlearning courses help people stay up-to-date and competitive without the commitment of a long-term programme.

Microlearning courses are flexible, no duration and can be completed anytime, anywhere and on any device. 

This course is completed through eLearning but assessment may include practical tasks. Assessment is fully supported by qualified tutors and the course fees include assessment and reporting of unit standards on the NZQA framework.

Understanding maths is critical to understanding and solving engineering problems. The engineering maths collection is a series of three courses, each builds on the learning from the one before.
