Computational Engineering specialisation

Students in the Mechanical or Mechanical (Space) stream must complete 18 credit points to achieve this specialisation.


Unit of study Credit points A: Assumed knowledge P: Prerequisites
C: Corequisites N: Prohibition
Students must complete 6 credit points from the following:
Advanced Computational Engineering
6 A Linear algebra, calculus and partial differential equations, Taylor series, the finite difference and finite element methods, numerical stability, accuracy, direct and iterative linear solvers and be able to write Matlab Scripts to solve problems using these methods
Students must complete 12 credit points from the following:
