This course introduces contemporary methods and tools for numerical analysis in engineering. Topics include numerical methods in differentiation, integration, root-finding, linear and non-linear regressions. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate: basic structured programming concepts involving decision making,loops, functions, and parameter passing: common numerical methods used in engineering analysis; estimation of the amount of error inherent in different numerical methods; assessment of numerical efficiency; method assessment of numerical efficiency; and convergence properties of different numerical methods.
