About ECL Course

Engineering Computation Lab (COE111L) is a new course that is offered by the department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Texas at Austin, starting Spring 2017. The overarching goal of the course is to introduce Aerospace undergraduate students with the principles of scientific computing, as well as the applications of numerical methods that the students learn in Engineering Computation (ASE 211K), offered parallel to this course. Towards this goal, Python was chosen as default programming language for the first offering of this course, but it can be switched to other languages such as R, MATLAB, Fortran, C++, etc., depending on the future needs of the Aerospace undergraduate program at UT Austin.


More information and details about the course content and class format can be found in the course syllabus (PDF).
