Unformatted text preview: Welcome to Engineering 3! Welcome First some introductions… First BRENDON HALL PhD Candidate, Mechanical Engineering Computational Fluid Dynamics Rm. 2301, Engineering II Office Hours: MW 11am-12pm brendon@engineering.ucsb.edu First some introductions… First ANTONIO MEDRANO PhD Candidate, Media Arts and Technology Rm. 4430B, South Hall Office Hours: W 12-2pm antonio@engineering.ucsb.edu Class Format Class LECTURE MTWR 9:30 – 10:50am August 7th – September 14th course material & concepts TUTORIAL SECTIONS W 2-3:20pm hands on instruction, assignment help starting this week! Class Website Class www.engr.ucsb.edu/~brendon/engr3 Assignment and lecture notes will be posted Assignment here Important announcements will also be posted Important here…check periodically! Computer Accounts Computer This is important. You need an account to be able to do assignments and take part in tutorial section. Go to www.engineering.ucsb.edu/~eci-web Go www.engineering.ucsb.edu/~eci Try to get this done by Wednesday Try PuTTY PuTTY To do assignments from home, you will need to log into college servers. PuTTY is a free secure-shell (SSH) client, see website for link. Coursework Coursework 5 or 6 assignments 1 “midterm” 1 final 50% 25% 25% The midterm will cover C programming (and a The little Linux). The final will be mostly Matlab. Curve? Depends…expect a C+/B average. Curve? Assignments Assignments Usually due Thursdays @ 5pm Programming assignments will be electronically submitted. This will be covered in tutorial this week. Matlab assignments may have a paper component, but we’ll see… Assignments will be posted on website Academic Misconduct Academic Please read department policy on class website The Moss/Berkeley plagiarism detection system will be used Please be careful with this! Course Content Course Tools to solve science and engineering problems with computers Introduce programming concepts with C, a general purpose programming language The Linux operating system will be introduced The scientific package MatLab will enable the solution of more complex problems and visualizations Scientific Computing Scientific First major triumph of scientific computing: Code breaking in World War II… Computational Science & Computational Engineering Goal: gain understanding, through analysis of mathematical models implemented on computers. Reconstruct and understand known events Optimize known scenarios Predict future or unobserved situations Bioinformatics & Systems Biology Bioinformatics Sequence analysis Protein structure prediction Systems Biology Design Design Analysis Optimization Geometry & assembly …and much more Computational Finance Climate Modeling Enhanced resource recovery ...
