Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module aims to: focus on the application of a systems and modelling approach to the analysis of physical processes across a range of engineering disciplines; introduce the engineering techniques and foundation material needed to perform such analysis; illustrate how these approaches can be used for analysing problems and processes of a multi-disciplinary nature.

Principal learning outcomes

"At completion, students will be able to: formulate mathematical models of physical processes using appropriate physical laws; understand, and be able to apply, techniques for analysing both linear and nonlinear systems apply appropriate computational tools, in an appropriate way, for systems analysis and simulation understand the techniques available for the development of data-driven models and performing system; identification/parameter estimation; understand the importance of model validation."

Timetabled teaching activities

"The course consists of : Eight two hour lectures; Eight two hour seminars; Two four hour laboratory sessions. "
