Content and structure of the minor

Modern design and production in engineering is based on computer assisted tools and processes as well as use of mathematical and statistical optimization and simulation. Computer assisted design (CAD), building information modeling (BIM) and geographic information systems (GIS) as well as finite element (FEM) and solid models are everyday tools in architectural and structural design of buildings and in design of land use and infrastructures of societies. Computational and mathematical methods are applied in computational fluid dynamics (CDF), mechatronics, traffic simulation, research on climate change, urban studies and – just to mention some of the application fields.   In mechanical engineering design and manufacturing computer aided engineering is applied in design and analysis of manufacturing plants, equipment and machinery and various kind of vehicles and systems used in transportation, energy field and robotics as well as in fluid mechanics. The computerized tools are based on 3D -models of objects and systems which are used in various analyses and design tasks. Modern complex systems require automatized tools and human decision making in design and todays engineer is expected to understand the principles of these advanced tools. The Minor in Computation and Engineering offers introductory courses to geometric modeling, statistical analysis, and decision support by mathematical and computational aids and tailoring and customizing of software applications. This Minor in Computation and Engineering offers a possibility to extend the Bachelor level studies towards engineering subjects. Computation and Engineering is suggested as a minor for the students who are aiming on Master level to studies in which computer assisted tools or computational and mathematical methods are in core role.
