Coronavirus Recovery: advice and latest information

Academic Supports

Time to revise! While all of the Semester 2 2020 alternate assessments will be completed online and there will be no in-person assessments, we advise that you prepare for and approach these alternate assessments in the same way that you would normally revise for exams. We are all working remotely now, but there are still lots of Academic Supports available to help you revise and prepare:

Maths support:

The Centre for Academic Success is offering bookable online 1:1 sessions via Zoom to help with maths and statistics topics.

There are also a number of online resources available on Blackboard under My Organisation/ College of Engineering Mathematics Resources. This includes:

  • HELM – Helping Engineers Learn Mathematics Workbooks
  • SIGMA – Summary sheets covering key areas in Mathematics
  • Lecture Notes – For the engineering analysis modules.
  • Links to external sites

MathCentre is another resource. This webpage contains a range of support, worksheets, that you can work through to teach yourself, or use an aid. Please see their website for further information:


Computer Aided Engineering Support:

  • There are also a number of online resources available to help you with the use of Engineering-specific software on Blackboard under College of Engineering Community/CAE Support Tutorials.
