Other requisites

Queensland Senior Secondary School Studies Mathematics B, Mathematical Methods (or equivalent) or ENM1500 Introductory Engineering Mathematics. This course is equivalent to MAT1102 and MAT1502. Students cannot enrol in ENM1600 if they have successfully completed MAT1102 or MAT1502. Please note this course includes similar topics taught in MAT1500 but in ENM1600 they are taught at a higher level.

Students are advised to undertake an online pretest on assumed knowledge prior commencing the course. This pretest will advise students the areas which need to be revised to ensure satisfactory progression in the course.
The results of the pretest may include recommendations for: further work (if required), or an alternative study plan, such as the Tertiary Preparation Program (Mathematics Level B course), to be completed prior to undertaking ENM1600.

Note the pretest (or self test) can be accessed through the link Mathematics Selftest for Engineering Mathematics (ENM1600) ( ) and clicking on “Self test”.
For further information about the pretest please contact engineering and surveying administration via the email or phone +61 7 4631 2525.


This course builds on the Queensland Mathematics B content and further develops algebra, function, trigonometric, exponential, logarithm and graphing competencies, and introduces matrices, vectors and calculus. Emphasis is placed on developing strong skills in these areas within an engineering context and on exploring and applying these skills to a range of engineering and surveying applications.
