F4 – Scientific Computing and Modeling


  Violaine Antoine   Jonas Koko
Objectives The view adopted here is that of considering the computer more as a tool than as a means of storing information. The term modeling should be taken here in the sense of mathematical and computational tools. The aim is to train engineers to master the relationship between real systems and digital models, able to develop and test complex software. Computer engineers we hope to train here will:
  • Participate in multidisciplinary teams, mathematical and computer modeling of continuous and discrete systems.
