Rutgers University, Camden, NJ
- Class meetings:
- Wednesdays 6:00PM - 8:50PM
- Strong background in undergraduate
- Knowledge of C++.
- This course is suitable for graduate
students and advanced
- This course will cover
various problems that
can be found in industry. We will take a problem based learning
Each problem studied will motivate the need for learning the
techniques necessary to solve the problem. The problems will be
using MATLAB and C++ programs. Part of the course will
writing a report on a project and giving a presentation of the
It is suggested that students learn to use LaTeX.
