Summary

 

System Design and Optimisation - ME3-HSDP

Aims

  • To introduce the concept and theory of mathematical optimisation
  • To demonstrate the practical use of optimisation in a range of system design problems from engineering (technical) design to complex processes such as civil planning and infrastructure and financial modelling, including non-quantitative and creative aspects of the design process.
  • To translate descriptive (semantic) design problems into mathematical optimisation problems
  • To acquaint students with modelling techniques and solution methods and software to implement them.

ECTS units:  6   
Contributing to Course Elements: 6 to ME3-LCTVS or ME4-LCTVS

Role

Course Leader

Embedded C for Microcontrollers - ME3-HECM

Aims

  • To introduce students who are proficient in MATLAB to C:  amongst the most widely-used ever amongst programming languages, and one which provides an excellent foundation for learning others (e.g. C++ and JavaScript).
  • To develop, from the basic knowledge of microcontrollers provided in ME2 Mechatronics, an ability to program, in C, mechatronic systems containing typical sensors and actuators.
