ab: SARTOR3 presents a challenge to designers of mathematical courses for
engineers. There is a requirement to differentiate clearly between the
educational experiences of Chartered Engineers and Incorporated
Engineers. The chartered engineer requires a range of higher level
mathematical skills, whilst the emphasis for incorporated engineers is
on the ability to carry out routine mathematical procedures. Many such
procedures can be performed using computer algebra systems and it is
clear that incorporated engineers should learn to use such systems. In
this paper we discuss what mathematics these students should learn in
order to be both intelligent users of technology and effective
incorporated engineers.
