Multi-disciplinary approach to teaching numerical methods to engineers using Matlab.

S. I. Barry, T. Webb

Abstract


Teaching Numerical Methods to first year engineering students is improved by a collaboration between engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians. Our approach has been to teach a problem based course with six, fortnightly assignments, each revolving around an engineering problem solved by a specific numerical method. The collaborative delivery, engineering problem focus, and intensive tutorials all contribute to make this a very successful course that gives the students a sound foundation to take into later years and hopefully their careers.
