Learning Outcomes (LO) Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
  1. use a broad and coherent theoretical knowledge to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the theory of elementary, ordinary and partial differential equations and some of its applications;
  2. develop a deep level of theoretical knowledge about partial differential equations;
  3. apply well-developed knowledge and skills relating to applications of differential equations; and
  4. analyse and generate solutions to sometimes complex problems, with logical and coherent methodolgy in solving differential equations.
