Credits: 5

Schedule: 25.02.2019 - 20.05.2019

Teaching Period (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

IV-V (Spring 2019), Course will not be lectured anymore in 2019-2020

Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Gain hands on experience in transforming a problem stated in plain language form into
a computational problem
Able to select and apply one or more computational modeling approaches in
engineering that suits the problem
Understand the practical challenges in implementing and applying the chosen
Understand the strengths and weaknesses of the applied methodology

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

In this course the students will engage in problem based learning through a project work (likely to be conducted in teams). The projects can include learning contents from various technologies introduced in the other CME minor courses (MAA-C2005, MAA-C3001, ENE-C3002, YYT-C3002) such as geometrical modeling, product data models, and pattern recognition. Students can choose projects from their core engineering backgrounds. Projects can range from ship building to urban planning or energy policies to built environments.

Assessment Methods and Criteria (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Project work (60%)
Project report (20%) submitted at the end of the project
Project log (10%) maintained online
Presentation (10%) at the end of the project

Study Material (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

To be listed.

Substitutes for Courses (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

RAK-C3002 Project Course on Computational Methods in Engineering

Course Homepage (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020):

Prerequisites (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Students should have attended at least one other course from the “Minor in computation and modelling in engineering” before attending the project course OR at least one course on programming.

Grading Scale (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The grading system is 0-5, where 0 is fail and 1-5 are pass grades.

Registration for Courses (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Registration via WebOodi.

Further Information (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

This course is part of the ENG BSc program “Minor in computation and modelling in engineering”, but it can also be taken independently. However, it is desirable that students have attended at least one other course from the “Minor in computation and modelling in engineering” before this course.
