The Math Support Course (MSK) is a voluntary exercise course for mechanical engineering students and industrial engineers specializing in MB in the first bachelor semester, which is organized by the Mechanical Engineering Student Council. It serves to prepare and repeat the knowledge from the upper school and to learn the necessary basics for the mathematical lectures in the first year of studies.
The math course is divided into eight dates and runs during the first semester. A different topic is covered on each date.
The topics are: Trigonometry, Vector Calculus, Complex Numbers, Systems of Linear Equations and Quadratic Equations, Matrices, Differential Calculus, Integral Calculus, Logarithmic Calculus and Exponential Calculus.
Attendance is completely voluntary and there is no examination to be taken. No new lecture material is covered, the support course serves exclusively to repeat the basics and to motivate students for their mechanical engineering studies by dealing with tasks with application relevance.
