AE: Design Minor + Math Minor

    Hello all,

    Currently I'm pursuing a minor in design along with my AE degree. However I had a strong calling to do 2 extra courses in Applied math. Namely:

    Advanced Engineering Mathematics II [
    The solution of linear differential equations with variable coefficients; study of the derivation, characteristics, and solutions of partial differential equations; Fourier series, Fourier transform, Laplace transform, and Green’s function; applications in science and engineering. ]

    and Boundary Value Problems [Name should be self explanatory] -Graduate level course-

    (The career part) Since I really want to pursue a career in design (in propulsion) will the strong mathematical background really help me in designing?

    (The academic Part) I'm planning to do my Masters of Science in AE at MIT, will this give me a boost in getting admitted and being able to handle the work right off the bat?

    Edit: or will they just be redundant and overkill....
