In my view the program should have a good balance between theory and practicals. It should be application driven. Teaching plain theory without clear motivation to students why they are learning it is not that fruitful. Ensure that the theory is mixed balanced andrigorous enough for the ededucation programme, in this case under graduates. Students should be encouraged and exposed to application of the theory on some study cases with appropriately chosen datasets. Long story short, see example programmes in world top class institutions of higher learning.

Basic computational skills using Mathematica. Ordinary differential equations, with applications in mechanics and nonlinear dynamics, using both Mathematica and Matlab. Solving partial differential equations using grid methods in Matlab.

Today world has changed to,"signals world" or indirect mathematical. With advent in computers/micro controllers for doing all kind of works, related pure science/medical science/engineering etc.Mathematical modeling, the only way to understand the subject in detail,with physical phenomena (using Matlab simulation technic , better understand can achieved by under graduate students, the future doctors/engineer/scientist ).

Computational Physics or Computer Science or Computational Science ? They are all different streams.

To make them used to, use the readimate , user friendly software and computational technics, with computer, ipad, cellphone, and matlab, for their problems related to physics and modern science(communication technics, with idea of setalite communication they use in their day today life,) and generate intrest of learning user friendly technics.

The simulation of the business and manufacturing processes plays an essential role in modern scientific research and decision-making in management. However, this simulation, especially its output performance measures, can be very tricky because these simulations depend on the calculations of particular simulation software. The objective of this pap...

In dieser Arbeit werden Petri-Netze als Werkzeug zur Modellierung und Simulation flexibler Montagesysteme vorgestellt. Nach einer kurzen informellen Einfhrung in die Terminologie der Petri-Netz-Theorie werden einige interessierende Eigenschaften erlutert. Anhand des Modells eines automatisierten Montagesystems wird sodann gezeigt, wie diese Eigensc...
