MXB161 Computational Explorations

Unit synopsis

This unit provides you with a practical understanding of computer-based solutions to scientific problems from a wide range of interdisciplinary application areas. You will have the opportunity to develop computing and visualisation skills and apply these to solve real problems involving topics such as image and sound processing, fractals and random walk simulations. These skills are developed further in later semesters, where there are opportunities to study MXB262 (Visualising Data), MXB362 (Advanced Visualisation and Data Science), and MXB261 (Modelling and Simulation Science).
