This subject provides engineering students with the opportunity to acquire knowledge of numerical methods, programming and engineering software and to apply this knowledge in engineering problem solving.
Excel spreadsheeting and Matlab programming is required to solve numerical problems in this subject with no prior knowledge of programming being assumed. There are opportunities to apply acquired skills through the assessment of project-based problem solving in the civil and mechanical engineering disciplines. Examples are chosen from within a broader engineering context and serve to reinforce material covered in other subjects in civil and mechanical engineering.
