  • Overview

    The learning hours are a guide to the total time needed for a student to complete the paper:
    24 x 1 hour lecture 24
    12 x 2 hour computer labs 24
    Student directed learning 102
    Total learning hours 150
    Develops skills in the interpretation and use of numerical methods appropriate to engineering and
    science, and in the development of computer programs using numerical techniques.
    On successful completion of this paper students will be able to:
    1. Apply numerical methods to solve systems of algebraic equations.
    2. Use polynomials and splines for interpolation and approximation of functions.
    3. Evaluate derivatives and integrals using numerical methods.
    4. Numerically solve differential equations and their system.
    5. Simulate processes using Monte Carlo methods.
    • Error analysis
    • Systems of linear equations
    • Interpolation and approximation
    • Numerical differentiation and integration
    • Numerical solution of differential equations and systems
    • Monte Carlo methods and simulation
    Lectures and weekly computer laboratory sessions. The student will apply the theory through
    regular assignments, which form an integral part of the course.

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

Eligibility for courses may be subject to a placement exam and/or pre-requisites.

Some courses may require additional fees.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.

Availability of courses is based on enrollment numbers. All students should seek pre-approval for alternate courses in the event of last minute class cancellations

Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
