Learning outcomes of the course unit
The outputs of this course are the skills and the knowledge which enable the graduates understanding of basic numerical problems and of the ideas on which the procedures for their solutions are based. In their future practice they will be able to recognize the applicability of numerical methods for the solution of technical problems and use the existing universal programming systems for the solution of basic types of numerical problems and their future improvements effectively.
Basic courses of mathematics for bachelor students, MATLAB programming (as in the recommended course at MAT FCE).
