MAT1575 with a grade of C or higher
Co-requisites: MAT2680
Text book:


The student should be responsible for finding relevant information related to the topics covered either online or from other sources.
  • Advanced Engineering Mathematics, 10th Edition by Kreyszig, Erwin published by John Wiley & Sons, 2012.
  • Schaum’s Outline of College Mathematics, Fourth Edition published by McGraw-Hill, 2010
Computer Usage: The students simulate lecture and assignments on the lab computers using Matlab.



  • This course presents a combination of technical and engineering mathematics concepts for the computer engineering technology students. Technical examples and problems within the engineering technology are presented. The student will use MATLAB to simulate the mathematical concepts presented in class. At course termination, a student should be able to, among other things:
  • Analyze electrical/electronic circuits and compare the mathematical, simulated and practical solutions.
  • Develop computer programs as a valid approach to software development for supporting engineering and scientific applications.
  • Solve computer engineering technology problems including definition, analysis, development and implementations.
  • Understand the importance of applied mathematics used in technology such as the use Differential Equations, Laplace Transforms, Matrices and Complex Numbers.
  • Analyze, Implement and interpret the value behind the Fourier Series.
Library Usage:              Students are strongly encouraged to use the library and Internet as a supplement to the lectures and textbook. In particular, they are urged to browse through the popular scientific journals and electronics magazines for recent developments in digital applications, such as new computer related products.
Grading Policy The final grade will be determined as follows:

  • Midterm exam                        30%
  • Quizzes  (6)                           25%
  • Final Project                           35%
  • Class Participation                   10%
Grade Numerical Grade  
Grade Ranges

60-69.9 D 1.0
59.9 and below F 0.0
Homework, Quizzes and Exams Homework is a great preparation for quizzes and tests, and will affect your Class Participation grade. All students will be asked questions in class and will be assigned problems to put on the board. Cell phone ringing and any other distracting behavior will affect this grade. Neither food nor drinks are allowed in class. Quizzes will be given weekly and at the beginning of class. They will cover the previous session’s lecture and homework assignment. There will NOT be any make-ups. So please, be there and be on time.


Final Semester


Final Semester: Each students will work on an instructor approved project. The project will involve in the application of mathematics and its respective physical or simulated solution. On week 14 & 15 each student will present his/her project in front of their classmates in a live demonstration, also a written report of the project will be collected.


Attendance Policy Under CUNY mandate, attendance in EACH class and lab is REQUIRED and attendance WILL be taken at each class and lab meeting. You are allowed a MAXIMUM of 2 absences. If you exceed that number, you may receive a WU grade. EXCESSIVE LATENESS (more than 10 minutes) will be considered to be an absence from that class meeting.

It is understood that sometimes things happen and a student will not be penalized with a documental proof if the student has an excused absence (such as doctor’s appointment).


Academic Integrity Policy Statement Students and all others who work with information, ideas, texts, images, music, inventions, and other intellectual property owe their audience and sources accuracy and honesty in using, crediting, and citing sources. As a community of intellectual and professional workers, the College recognizes its responsibility for providing instruction in information literacy and academic integrity, offering models of good practice, and responding vigilantly and appropriately to infractions of academic integrity. Academic dishonesty is prohibited in The City University of New York and is punishable by penalties, including failing grades, suspension, and expulsion. Some examples of academic dishonesty are cheating, plagiarism, Internet plagiarism, obtaining unfair advantage, falsification of records and official documents, and collusion.


Helpful Hints: 1) You may get assistance in the Tech Learning Center.

2) Students who are failing should consider officially withdrawing on or before the Withdrawal Date to avoid an F or WU grade.

3) Study in groups. Studies have shown that students who study in this manner perform better in all of their classes. SO MAKE FRIENDS.

4) Do your homework and seek help immediately for any difficulties that arise. Don’t wait until the night before the work is due.

5) Don’t expect every concept to be crystal clear after a single reading. More than one reading of a section may be necessary.

6) Work through the example problems step by step before trying the related problems.

7) Review the chapter Summary and equation list. Take the multiple choices self-test.
