Monika is a Teaching Fellow  and Deputy Admissions Tutor for Undergraduate Programmes at the Department of Aeronautics. Her primary focus is on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in applications to Aeronautics.


AERO97072/3 - Artificial Intelligence for Aerospace Engineers

This course introduces the most popular Machine Learning and AI algorithms used in the Aerospace research and industry. Building on basic knowledge of MATLAB and Python as well as Linear Algebra, students gain both theoretical and practical understanding of AI models such as Deep Neural Networks or Unsupervised Learning algorithms. Course assignments give students familiarity with programming in TensorFlow Keras and proficiency in designing, training and optimization of their own AI models.

AERO40004 - Engineering Practice 1: Professional Skills

Introductory course aimed at development of experimental skills, including lab report writing.
