Unformatted text preview: 1 Introduction to Numerical Methods in Electrical Engineering Text: Second Edition, McGraw-Hill, 2008. ECSE 443 Note: A “working knowledge” of MATLAB will be required to do the course assignments! January 2010 General Information Lectures: MWF 10:35 – 11:25 Tutorials: Wed 17:35 – 19:25 TR-0070 Fri 13:35 – 15:25 TR-2120 ? Tutors: Adrian Ngoly & Maryam Golshayan Advising: T.B.A. Professor: Steve McFee Advising: MWF 11:35 – 12:25 Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB for Engineers and Scientists, S.C. Chapra, Rm. T.B.A. Prerequisites: ECSE 221, ECSE 330, ECSE 351 or ECSE 353 (only for CE students). Help? Two introductory lectures will be given on MATLAB, and the text should be helpful for student review / remedial self-study. Course Objective The purpose of ECSE 443 is to introduce the key theoretical concepts and practical applications of the fundamental numerical methods used in EE. The teaching approach is focused on the methods, and how to use them; not on derivations or proofs. The objective is to develop “practical knowledge”. 2 3 Tentative Course Evaluation Class Test #1 20 marks (March 1) Class Test #2 20 marks (March 29) Assignment #1 15 marks (1/29 – 2/12) Assignment #2 15 marks (2/12 - 3/5) Assignment #3 15 marks (3/5 – 3/19) Assignment #4 15 marks (3/19 – 4/9) Note The “tentative” aspects of this evaluation scheme only pertain to the dates and individual values for the assignments (the total allotment of 60 marks for assignments is fixed); the test dates are firm. L There will not be a Final Exam for this course. In accord with McGill University’s Charter of Students’ Rights, students in this course have the right to submit in English or in French any written work that is to be graded. Lecture Material and Handouts The intention is to present much (hopefully half?) of the lecture material for ECSE 443 using slides. The students will be given copies of this material. However, a significant amount of the lectures will be presented using the blackboard. The students will need to be prepared to take notes in lectures! Further, the lectures are not designed to replace the text; the students will need to read the text! Tutorials Scheduled tutorials will be held weekly to provide teaching support for the required course content. Tutorials will not be used to teach any new course material, however some tutorial slots may be used for MATLAB review, and for Class Test solutions. Tutor: Adrian Ngoly ([email protected]) 4 Assignments Assignments form an important part of ECSE 443 and they will count highly in the course evaluation! The assignments will target all key aspects of the course, and they are intended to promote student self-learning, and to serve for student evaluation. Each assignment will require the student to carry out original MATLAB programming and computing; MATLAB M-files must be submitted for testing! Although the assignments are MATLAB oriented, associated theoretical questions or non-MATLAB calculations (e.g. analytical) also may be required. Important! It is strongly recommended that students try to understand and do their assignments individually. Marker: 5 Maryam Golshayan ([email protected]) Academic Integrity at McGill University McGill University values academic integrity. Therefore all students must understand the meaning and consequences of cheating, plagiarism and other academic offences under the Code of Student Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures.
