Intended learning outcomes

The course aims to provide a general understanding of MATLAB as a programming language.

Students graduating from the course shall be able to:

  • Starting from a given technical situation and given mathematical formulas, to plan, program, present and defend a solution to a mechanical problem using MATLAB.

Course main content

The course is a teacher-assisted self-study course in computing and programming language MATLAB. The course is examined by an oral presentation of a solution to a programming assignment. The assignment considers a realistic technical problem that a third year student is able to solve with a full understanding of related mathematical, numerical and mechanical aspects. In that respect the problem descriptions provides a descriptive (qualitative) introduction to these courses. The programming assignment shall further illustrate the model concept in a practical virtual simulation task and the results will have to be a realistic solution for a typical engineering task to further highlight and stimulate continuing studies.

Eligibility

Basic course in linear algebra.
