In order to achieve the learning objectives, the students should have the knowledge and skills that their previous education provides to their access to the University training:
- Knowledge: geometry, basic trigonometry, basic mathematical operations (power, logarithms, fractions, etc.), polinomials, matrices, derivation, integration and graphical
representation of elementary functions.
- Basic skills in the managment of instrumentation: elementary use of computers and mathematical software.
Industrial engineers are professionals who use knowledge of physical and mathematical sciences and engineering techniques to develop his professional activity in aspects such as control, instrumentation an automation of processes and equipment, as well as design, construction, operation and maintenance of industrial products. This training allows them to participate succesfully in the different branches integrated in industrial engineering, such as mechanics, electricity, electronics, etc. It also make them adopt the changes of technologies in these areas, where appropriate, to respond to the needs that arise in the productive branches and services, so achieving the welfare of society.
Within the mathematical knowledge, the methods developed in the course of Algebra have revealed as the most adequate for the modern treatment of many disciplines including in the curriculum. Such disciplines will allow industrial engineers to face real problems that they can find at work.
Therefore, this subject is an essential part of the basic training of future engineers. Its main purpose is to provide students the algebraic and geometric resources to solve problems concerning maths and engineering. In this sense, this subject will help them to enhance the capacities of abstraction, understanding, analysis, implementation and synthesis that are common in mathematics and neccesary to any other scientific discipline or branch of engineering.
