This course covers the most important numerical methods that an engineer should know. We derive basic algorithms in root finding, matrix algebra, integration and interpolation, ordinary and partial differential equations. We learn how to use MATLAB to solve numerical problems. Access to MATLAB online and the MATLAB grader is given to all students who enroll.

### TOP REVIEWS FROM NUMERICAL METHODS FOR ENGINEERS

A good course for a basic introduction to Numerical Methods

it is a nice course to start with. It made me want to learn more. good luck sir.

Very useful for anyone wanting to learn or revise numerical programming using matlab

Very nice introduction to numerical methods.

The MATLAB assignments were challenging but worth the effort.

Many thanks to Prof Chasnov.
