Leerdoelen  At the end of the course, the student is able to: 1.conceptualize dynamical systems in terms of physical (or virtual) components, the environment in which they operate, as well as their stimuli and responses (outputs) 2.use mathematics (for example, ordinary and partial differential equations) to describe such dynamical systems 3.use analytical tools to solve simple cases of dynamical systems across domains 4.use numerical tools to solve (systems of) ordinary and partial differential equations and be able to discern the accuracy of the solutions 5.visualize the time histories and phase space solutions of complex dynamical systems 6.describe in a concise manner the behavior of complex systems supported by evidence 

Omschrijving  The course aims to integrate the knowledge gained from preceding courses on mathematics, modeling and programming, crystallizing this with carefully chosen application examples and assignment work performed within teams. Specifically, students will explore the interplay between mathematics and engineering in the context of the dynamics of engineering systems, where the goal is to predict system behavior. MATLAB is the main software used in this course. A broad spectrum of dynamical physical and virtual systems is covered in this course, including structural, fluid and network dynamics, heat transfer, reaction kinetics, etc. Students will be exposed to different types of engineering research with characteristic examples of applications and the models used to study those. By the end of the course, students should be able to describe the behavior of such systems, build the models necessary to capture the main aspects of this behavior, and analyze model predictions compared to empirical observations of reality; these aspects will be tested in a final exam. Lectures will take place each week to introduce and strengthen the concepts and theory necessary for the computer practicals. Students will work in teams to submit assignments on each of the main topics of the course. A poster symposium will take place midway through the course. Team grades are calculated based on assignment submissions (60%), symposium posters (10%), as well as midterm (10%) and final exams (20%). Receiving more than one insufficient grade (<5.5 out of 10) on the assignments will result in the team members receiving a fail in this course, as these students will not be able to take the final exam. Participation in the symposium poster session, as well as the midterm and final exams is mandatory to pass this course. Receiving a passing grade (>5.5 out of 10) on the final exam is required to pass the course. Individual grades will be calculated using a peer review scheme.

Entreevoorwaarden  The course serves as the finalization of the mathematics learning path in the first year of the IEM bachelor programme and, as such, follows the two courses on Calculus for IEM and Linear Algebra, while the course content thematically complements that of the courses on Programming, Modeling and Simulation and System Dynamics. Students are assumed to have prior knowledge from these preceding courses, especially on ordinary and partial differential equations, linear algebra and basic modeling and programming skills.  
Opmerkingen  Receiving a passing grade (>5.5 out of 10) on at least 3 out of 4 assignments and participation in the symposium poster sessions are required for a student to be able to take the final exam. Assignment and symposium presentation team grades will be adjusted via peer evaluation to determine individual student grades; final exam grades are for individual students.
