TRACKS

 

A student/faculty is able to choose a customized track based on four mathematical package and seven engineering majors for a total of 28 tracks.

 

Mathematical package The user has a choice among the four most widely used mathematical packages, namely,

  1. Maple,

  2. MathCAD,

  3. MATHEMATICA and

  4. MATLAB.

There are several reasons for developing simulations using all the four mathematical packages.

  • For continuity, cost and pedagogy, a college may emphasize only one of these packages in their curriculum.

  • There is no additional cost involved if a university already has a site license to one of the four mathematical packages.

  • A student may want to be exposed to more than one mathematical package

  1. Chemical Engineering,

  2. Civil Engineering,

  3. Computer Engineering,

  4. Electrical Engineering,

  5. General Engineering,

  6. Industrial Engineering, and

  7. Mechanical Engineering.

Specific examples used to illustrate numerical methods come from each of the areas. Having such choice holds the user's attention, as it closely relates to real-life problems of his or her interest.
