Pre-requisite: (ENM2600 or MAT2100 or MAT2500) or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: GDET or METC or GDNS or MENS
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. This course uses the mathematical tools from ENM2600 and earlier mathematics courses to provide options for analysis that are not available from pure mathematics. This course provides foundational tools for other courses (such as ELE2103, ENV3104 and MEC4108), while also equipping students to undertake a wider array of analyses in their final-year research project.
Skills in programming will be taught using a scripting language and assessed via a range of numerical computation exercises. 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.
