ENME PhD Approved Math Courses

ENME 605: Advanced Systems Control (3 Credits) Prerequisite: ENME462; or permission of instructor.
Modern control theory for both continuous and discrete systems. State space representation is reviewed and the concepts of controllability and observability are discussed. Design methods of deterministic observers are presented and optimal control theory is formulated. Control techniques for modifying system characteristics are discussed.

ENME 610: Engineering Optimization (3 Credits).

Overview of applied single- and multi- objective optimization and decision making concepts and techniques with applications in engineering design and/or manufacturing problems. Topics include formulation examples, concepts, optimality conditions, unconstrained/constrained methods, and post-optimality sensitivity analysis. Students are expected to work on a semester-long real-world multi-objective engineering project.


ENME 625: Multidisciplinary Optimization (3 Credits).

Overview of single- and multi-level design optimization concepts and techniques with emphasis on multidisciplinary engineering design problems. Topics include single and multilevel optimality conditions, hierarchic and nonhierarchic modes and multilevel post optimality sensitivity analysis. Students are expected to work on a semester-long project.


ENME 700: Advanced Mechanical Engineering Analysis (3 Credits)

An advanced, unified approach to the solution of mechanical engineering problems, emphasis is on the formulation and solution of equilibrium, eigenvalue and propagation problems. Review and extension of undergraduate material in applied mathematics with emphasis on problems in heat transfer, vibrations, fluid flow and stress analysis which may be formulated and solved by classical procedures.


ENME 725: Probabilistic Optimization (3 Credits).
Prerequisite: An advanced undergraduate course in probability and a graduate course in optimization or permission of the instructor required.
Also offered as: ENCE725.
Credit only granted for: ENME725 or ENCE725.
Provide an introduction to optimization under uncertainty.
