ENG3104 Engineering Simulations and Computations

Short Description: Engineering Simulations & Comp
Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences
School or Department : Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences
Student contribution band : Band 2
ASCED code : 039999 - EnginTech not classified
Grading basis : Graded


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

Other Requisites

This course is substantially similar to ENG3103 and ENG4104. Students cannot enrol in ENG3104 if they have successfully completed ENG3103 or ENG4104.


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.
