Mathematical Methods Applied to Engineering

About Course

We at GCET feel that an undergraduate student should utilize their extra time constructively. auditing a class is one way to do so. This will help students to expand their knowledge without the burden of assignments, university exam etc. This academic option has become increasingly popular among all college students. This type of course can provide you an opportunity to explore a topic that you have always been interested in. This might also be useful to mention in the placement interview or SOP for the further study abroad. In this connection we are offering the above mentioned course for the benefit of the students.
