Learning Outcomes
Technical calculations today are almost completely carried out with the help of computers. therefore, an engineer has to be able to use different mathematical software. In this course the student will learn to use MathCad system to solve tecnicalmathematical problems. This program can be used both for numerical and symbloical calculations. After the coarse the student is able to use MathCad for solving mathematical problems in engineering.
Student's Workload
Total work load of the course: 56 h
 of which scheduled studies: 24 h
 of which autonomous studies: 32 h
The assessment of studentâ€™s own learning 1 h is included.
