ENGR 056. Modeling and Optimization for Engineering


What is the optimal way to direct light into the body to destroy a tumor? What is the lightest bridge we can construct without the beams breaking? To answer such questions, students will learn how to generate a computer-based model of the physics, and then use optimization to make design decisions. The majority of the course will focus on optimization, and topics may include: constrained least-squares, linear programming, convex optimization, data-driven optimization, non-convex optimization, and deep learning.
Prerequisite: MATH 027  or MATH 028 , MATH 043  or MATH 044 , ENGR 012 , ENGR 014 , and ENGR 019  are required.
