Optimizing Engineering Methods

Course Objective

Engineers and scientists taking this class should already be knowledgeable on how to use Isight to create workflows in the Design Gateway and execute them in the Runtime Gateway.

This course teaches the users about nonlinear optimization theories and applications. Workshops will be conducted to demonstrate the capabilities of different algorithms. This course will use many of the Isight optimization techniques. Some modern optimization techniques that are not included in Isight will also be discussed.
