Course Overview

Many polytechnic diploma holders who pursue university degrees in Engineering or Science often find university Mathematics challenging. This is a specialised University Preparatory Programme (UPP) in Mathematics course designed to bridge the gap between polytechnic- and university-level Mathematics. It will focus on intermediate Calculus and covers topics such as Improper Integrals, Infinite Series, Complex Numbers, Vectors, Partial Differentiation, Multiple Integrals, and Ordinary Differential Equations.

Exemption Available
