Sem2 Numerics TUW

Numerics  @  TUW  30 ECTS credits

The second semester at TUW (Vienna University of Technology) provides a stronger background on advanced methods for the implementation of numerical codes (computer programming). Moreover, the student will have the opportunity to acquire basic skills in parallel computing and high performance computing. This semester will also include optional units in Numerical Optimization and Statistics.
