ENCE201
(Perm Req)
Engineering Information Processing
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Prerequisite: ENES220 and MATH241; and permission of ENGR-Civil & Environmental Engineering department.
Corequisite: MATH246.
Credit only granted for: ENCE201 or ENCE203.
Exploration of algorithms for solving problems in several important areas of numerical computing: roots of equations; matrix algebra and the systems of linear equations; function approximation, numerical differentiation and integration; and ordinary differential equations. Issues of solution accuracy, robustness, and efficiency are also considered. Numerical techniques are presented in the context of engineering applications, and example problems are solved using a variety of computer-based tools (primarily MATLAB).

Engineering for Sustainability
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Prerequisite: CHEM135; and permission of ENGR-Civil & Environmental Engineering department.
Engineers have a key role to play in planning, designing, building, and ensuring a sustainable future. In this class, a problem-based approach is used to examine fundamentally-based analyses and approaches for engineering as sustainable society, with a focus on sustainable use of energy and materials, sustainable infrastructure solutions, atmospheric sustainability and sustainable water supply, and human population growth and resource consumption and its implications for sustainability.
