Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
become familiar with the mathematical principles and solution algorithms essential for practical application and have practiced the implementation of model-based optimization task on the computer. The students learn the importance of the procedure and the form of the conversion of practical model-based design tasks into mathematical optimization tasks as well as the selection and application of suitable solution algorithms and to master them in first approaches. In addition, students gain insight into current research in the field of multidisciplinary design optimization and the challenges of implementing the theory from the lecture in practice.
