|Abstract||This course is designed to familiarize students with formal methods to be used in general situations to solve problems. The content can be applied in the fields of Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geomatic Engineering and Spatial Planning and Infrastructure Systems.|
|Objective||Upon successful completion of the course the students will be able:|
-to apply the basic solving problem process,
-to develop basic mathematical models to determine optimal solutions to problems, to
-to develop basic models to be used in decision making, and
-to be able to conduct basic economic and cost-benefit analyses.
All of which will improve their ability to find optimal solutions to problems in the fields of Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geomatic Engineering and Spatial Planning and Infrastructure Systems.
-Problem solving process
-Decision making models
