Computing is ubiquitous in Energy and Environment. Whether one works in industry, government or academia, numerical simulations need to be performed, equations solved or data analysed. As part of a modern engineering education, it is therefore highly beneficial for students to acquire familiarity with basic computing practices.
This course will introduce students to computing and programming through the use of an interpreted language, Python. Other software applications (e.g. Flowgorithm and Microsoft Excel) will be covered briefly as well.
