Extends students’ skills in logic, programming and numerical analysis. Students are introduced to differential equations and their application to solving engineering problems. Students also learn to conduct virtual experiments using simulation packages.
Programing and logic
Numerical differentiation and integration
Differential equations and applications
Introduction to numerical solution of differential equations
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
