Vector Calculus for Engineers covers both basic theory and applications. In the first week we learn about scalar and vector fields, in the second week about differentiating fields, in the third week about multidimensional integration and curvilinear coordinate systems. The fourth week covers line and surface integrals, and the fifth week covers the fundamental theorems of vector calculus, including the gradient theorem, the divergence theorem and Stokes’ theorem. These theorems are needed in core engineering subjects such as Electromagnetism and Fluid Mechanics. Instead of Vector Calculus, some universities might call this course Multivariable or Multivariate Calculus or Calculus 3. Two semesters of single variable calculus (differentiation and integration) are a prerequisite. The course is organized into 53 short lecture videos, with a few problems to solve following each video. And after each substantial topic, there is a short practice quiz. Solutions to the problems and practice quizzes can be found in instructor-provided lecture notes. There are a total of five weeks to the course, and at the end of each week there is an assessed quiz.

i have completed Three courses of Professor Jeffrey. I'm so happy that i learnt a lot from him. Thanks to our professor Jeffrey and thanks to The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.



Professor Chasnov is a great instructor. I strongly recommend this course (and others from his). Thank you so much for making such great quality content available for everyone no matter where.

The beginning was easy and seemed that the rest of the course would be easy, but as you keep on, it gets tougher and harder and only the tough can keep going untill you get to a point where it becomes easy once more to you.

Some additional time for some concepts would be needed, but in general, a really interesting course. Learnt some new "things" that I hardly knew from my old studies. Congratulations to you too for the course.

It was a hard course for me, I don't think the math I did in high school was foundational enough for me to understand this course. I suggest doing some fundamental math courses before attempting this course.

The quizzes and the practice quizzes were a bit challenging. I feel like the videos need more explanations that can help understand some problems in the quizzes. But in all I felt challenged to learn more.

It was great, the professor did a great job in explanation, but at the same time, he didn't explain further with examples for some topics which made it really challenging for me to understand.

It was exciting and challenging more than anything when you already saw something at school then you reinforce it or learn something new, you even put into practice what you know

excellent videos; good problems; unusual to get a series of high quality notes to download. I found the final section demanding and I will need to review this section.

Very good course with difficult problems. Very good instructor. Needs to provide a bit more geometric intuition to the sections involving vector integral calculus.

prof. Chasnov explains really goodand all the topics are presented in a well structured way. I wouldn't recommend this course for learn vector calculus from zero

創建者 Srivatsan R


Great course all around. Just one suggestion would be to solve at least 1 example of each type of theorem if possible as it makes problem solving much easier.

It was a very educating course on various theorems, proof of laws, various subtopics on integration and differentiation. I would highly recommend the course.

創建者 Peter B


A well thought out and organized course. A great tool to refresh or learn vector calculus and more importantly it's uses in engineering fields.

創建者 Alejandro M


A short and very complete course of vector calculus, it takes the most important thing to be seen in almost a month.



It was challenging to study vector calculus for futher complicated engineering. Made very useful for furthur.

創建者 Mohammad Y A


The course was nice. However, the pace was sometimes faster than appropriate and other slower.

創建者 Jeremiah Z W


Given the imposed time constraint, it is a well taught course on multivariable calculus.

創建者 Jayadeep U B


Contents of fourth week can be expanded into two weeks and covered in more detail.



It 's sufficient for easily understand vector calculus and well explained.

創建者 Veethika G


It's a very interesting and fun course you'll understand things easily.

創建者 Fabiola A M


Si me sirvió mucho para mis cursos de mi carrera muy recomendable

創建者 David O


The lecturer is really smart and he makes you want to learn more

創建者 Christa-Gail A


It is very practical and the concepts are not so difficult

創建者 Ahmed A T


a very good course. Thanks a lot for professor Chasnov

創建者 Ng K H


A challenging but useful egineering math course!

創建者 César A L L


Great introduction to multivariate calculus.
