101-0700-00L | Programming for Engineers | 4 credits | 2V + 2U | B. Sudret, N. Lüthen | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Abstract | This course is a hands-on introduction to programming with Matlab and Python, oriented at the needs of civil engineers. The course is held in a novel format comprising self-paced tutorials, a project consisting of implementing an engineering application including graphical user interface, and individual meetings with teaching assistants to demonstrate understanding and progress. | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Objective | Students recognize the usefulness and power of computer tools in civil engineering, and are prepared to independently use Matlab or Python for solving future problems. • Students are able to explain basic computer science concepts in simple terms. • Students are able to understand and explain the functionality of existing code. • Students are able to analyse a simple civil engineering problem in order to partition it into logical blocks and devise an algorithm to systematically solve the problem. • Students are able to implement simple imperative algorithms in Matlab and Python and explain the functionalities of their code. They are able to extend existing code with new functionalities. • Students are able to validate, test and debug their own code as well as existing code. • Students are able to explain the basics of object-oriented and interactive programming and are able to extend existing skeleton code to create simple graphical user interfaces. | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Content | The course is structured into six modules. The first five are using Matlab, while the last introduces Python. 1. Getting to know Matlab: Matlab as a calculator, variables and arrays 2. Programming basics I: iterating and branching 3. Programming basics II: input and output, functions, visualization 4. Introduction to scientific programming: implementing simple algorithms from numerics, statistics and discrete math; validation, testing and debugging 5. From structures to objects to GUI: basics of object-oriented programming, introduction to interactive programming and graphical user interfaces (GUI) 6. Introduction to programming with Python | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Lecture notes | A script will be provided. The students will discover the topics of each module through E.Tutorials that they will follow at their own pace online. | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Abstract | This course is a mixture between a seminar primarily for PhD and postdoc students and a colloquium involving invited speakers. It consists of presentations and subsequent discussions in the area of modeling complex socio-economic systems and crises. Students and other guests are welcome. | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Objective | Participants should learn to get an overview of the state of the art in the field, to present it in a well understandable way to an interdisciplinary scientific audience, to develop novel mathematical models for open problems, to analyze them with computers, and to defend their results in response to critical questions. In essence, participants should improve their scientific skills and learn to work scientifically on an internationally competitive level. | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Content | This course is a mixture between a seminar primarily for PhD and postdoc students and a colloquium involving invited speakers.
