Is math important to the study of Power Engineering? Yes it is very important! The study of math prepares the learner for calculations and the use of formulae in a number of subjects such as Applied Mechanics & Dynamics, Elementary Physical & Thermodynamic Properties, Basic Concepts in Electro-technology, and more.
SOPEEC is no longer examining math separately. Instead, they are examining learners' understanding of the concepts based on application of mathematical skills in other topic areas.
Two subject units, Applied Mathematics and Introduction to Power Engineering, will now be available in a separate book as preparatory material.
Introduction to Power Engineering will include the following new topics:
- Basic Steam and the Steam Cycle
- Roles and Duties of a Power Engineer
- Shift work factors (including sleep patterns, dietary, and other related concerns)
This new set of learning materials will benefit learners who wish to upgrade their classification and would appreciate additional assistance brushing up on the basics of Mathematics.
