Course Name: Numerical Methods (Lec) 

Course Description: A course covers the concepts of numerical
analysis and computer software tools in dealing with engineering problems. It
includes techniques in finding the roots of an equation, solving
systems of linear and non-linear equations, eigenvalue problems, polynomial
approximation and interpolation, ordinary and partial differential equations.
The Monte-Carlo method, simulation, error propagation and analysis, the methods
of least squares and goodness-of-fit tests are also discussed.
Prerequisite: EM 4 Differential Equation
Lecture Unit:  3 units – 3 hours/week
Course Outcome:  After completing this course, the student must be able to
  1. Use the numerical methods in modern scientific computing.
