The course provides the principles of modelling and simulation of modern mechatronic systems, which are mechanical systems integrated with several types of sensors and actuators. The aim of the course is to show different methodologies to improve the potential of mechanical systems by transforming them into mechatronic systems based [...]
This course continues your study of calculus by focusing on the applications of integration. The applications in this section have many common features. First, each is an example of a quantity that is computed by evaluating a definite integral. Second, the formula for that application is derived [...]
This course continues your study of calculus by introducing the notions of series, sequences, and integration. These foundational tools allow us to develop the theory and applications of the second major tool of calculus: the integral. Rather than measure rates of change, the integral provides a means [...]
This course continues your study of calculus by focusing on the applications of integration to vector valued functions, or vector fields. These are functions that assign vectors to points in space, allowing us to develop advanced theories to then apply to real-world problems. We define line integrals, which [...]
In this course, we build on previously defined notions of the integral of a single-variable function over an interval. Now, we will extend our understanding of integrals to work with functions of more than one variable. First, we will learn how to integrate a real-valued multivariable function over different [...]
This is a great course for anyone who wants to gain foundational and critical analysis and statistics skills with no prior background. In this course, we explore statistical methods for examining the relationships between variables. We also consider how data from the past can be used to make forecasts [...]
Understand the dynamics of buildings’ thermal behavior and learn how to optimize their design and operation through thermal modeling. Many engineers are puzzled by questions such as: how to shift or reduce peak heating demand to obtain a better match with a smart grid or renewable energy system? What [...]
This course focuses on evaluating alternative spatial configurations to support evidence-based decision making. You will learn methods for calculating various spatial performance metrics related to the built environment that can be used for comparative analysis of design options.
This course focuses on generating spatial information models capturing various relationships and constraints. You will learn a set of advanced modelling techniques for generating spatial models. You will create multiple procedures that annotate and query your models using attribute data. By the end of the course, you will be [...]
Learn how to critically evaluate solutions and make well-informed decisions based on data by merging Microsoft Excel skills with philosophical critical reasoning. No prior experience with Microsoft Excel required.
