The student must obtain knowledge about common numerical methods for modeling of problems in science and engineering, and be able to use the methods for computational modeling. The latter includes the construction and usage of computer programs in Matlab based on the numerical methods, and the usage of commercial software packages. Students completing the module will obtain knowledge within the following areas.
The student must be able to judge which numerical method from a range of methods is most suitable for a specific computational problem. The student must be able to carry out computational modeling by constructing and using his / her own programs in Matlab, and by using commercial software packages.
The student will gain insight into numerical methods for computational modeling, and will gain experience in using the methods. This will serve as a foundation based on which the student will be able to choose and use appropriate numerical methods for specific computational problems, including constructing and using numerical programs in matlab, and using commercial software packages.
Lectures combined with theoretical exercises.
Since it is a 5 ECTS course module the expected workload is 150 hours for the student.
