Engineering mathematics is a branch of applied mathematics concerned with mathematical methods and techniques commonly used in engineering and industry. It is sometimes included in the broader category of engineering sciences, along with fields such as engineering physics and engineering geology.
Engineering mathematics is an interdisciplinary subject that requires engineers to consider practical, theoretical, and other considerations outside their expertise and to address the constraints on their ability to do their jobs effectively.
