Engineering Mathematics is an integral part of your degree but we understand that it is a topic that many of you find difficult and so we want you to provide you with the help and support you need to succeed.
The College of Engineering Mathematics Resources are freely available to all students in the College of Engineering at Swansea University. We have a variety of resources available if you
- need to refresh your mathematical skills
- need additional help with the mathematical aspect of your course
We operate a weekly mathematics cafe and also have lots of resources on-line that you can access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Mathematics and CAE Cafes
The (joint) Engineering Mathematics and CAE Cafe offers an informal environment where you can drop-in to get help with Engineering Mathematics, CAD and FE analysis. From the week beginning 9th October 2018 the opening times are:
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Thursday afternoons 1pm-3pm in Engineering Central A027 - Opposite Coffeeopolis
The Cafe is open to all students in the College of Engineering and operates on a drop-in basis. The Cafe is manned by specially HESTEM trained postgraduate students with support from academic staff.
