This text serves as a concise introduction to the ocean of information collectively known as “Engineering Mathematics.” Admittedly, compiling everything into a short book that is useful to any audience is an impossible task; therefore, we picked a few main ideas holding up the mathematics within the engineering curriculum instead of stuffing all of the details into such a small package. This text addresses conceptual understanding as often as possible by providing an intuitive basis for formalized study within engineering/mathematics.

Design, within the context of engineering, is a term that is sometimes difficult to define. Design can be innovative, impressive, and earthshattering, but it can also be observed in the building of simple devices using everyday materials in a classroom environment. This text examines the concept of design, where success means that the designers fulfilled the established requirements, stayed within the specified constraints, and met the evaluation criteria as optimally as possible.

This text serves as the companion text to Introductory Engineering Mathematics, which introduces common mathematical concepts we see in engineering, including trigonometry, calculus, and functions. This text assumes a level of mathematics of a high school senior, plus some elements from the introductory text. Additional concepts we see in engineering are also introduced: specifically, matrices, differential equations, and some introduction to series. After, the basics of system analysis, including stability, are explored.
