2. LEARNING OUTCOMES
In many problems / systems of everyday life we care about the change of a quantity (variable) of our interest w.r.t. time (rate of change). In order to model (mathematically) and solve these problems we use differential equations. The role of d.e. is therefore a protagonist in many scientific fields, especially in engineering. The purpose of this undergraduate course is to introduce basic concepts and techniques to students in order to be able to solve ordinary differential equations. Furthermore, applications of d.e. are being presented in basic problems/fields of Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Environment and so on.
The aim of the course is also, to give the students the ability to use differential equations to model natural phenomena / situations, to be able to solve such equations and to interpret the solutions of the equations.The course is addressed to the sophomore students of the School / Department of Environmental Engineering of the Technical University of Crete.
