Synopsis

Of particular importance to the engineer is the ability to develop an appropriate model to describe the behaviour of an engineering system, and then to analyse that behaviour and apply engineering judgement in the interpretation of the results of that model. Often this model will be of a numerical nature and the engineer requires the ability to solve such numerical problems. The student will be required to develop skills in programming using a scripting language. The student will undertake a range of numerical computation exercises using a scripting language. The student will develop skills in problem solving within an engineering context. A number of real world problems and case studies provide the basis for meeting this objective. Advanced numerical techniques and programming skills for the handling of non-linearity, where it is impossible to solve problems analytically through the usage of algebra and calculus, will be learnt.
