3.021 Introduction to Modeling and Simulation

Class Info

Basic concepts of computer modeling and simulation in science and engineering. Uses techniques and software for simulation, data analysis and visualization. Continuum, mesoscale, atomistic and quantum methods used to study fundamental and applied problems in physics, chemistry, materials science, mechanics, engineering, and biology. Examples drawn from the disciplines above are used to understand or characterize complex structures and materials, and complement experimental observations.

This class has 3.016, and 18.03 as prerequisites.

3.021 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by M. Buehler and R. Gomez-Bombarelli.

Lecture occurs 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-231.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

7.09 Quantitative and Computational Biology

Class Info

Quantitative and computational analysis of biological systems at the molecular and cellular level. Includes models of biological processes across different time scales, from steady-state to kinetics of gene expression, circadian clock, cell growth, and evolutionary dynamics. Methods include physical, systems, and synthetic biology. Also covers second-generation sequencing technologies, and topics in computational analysis of genomes, including sequence alignment, motif finding, information theory and RNA secondary structure prediction.

This class has 7.03, and 7.05 as prerequisites.

7.09 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by C. Burge and G. W. Li.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 4-261.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

10.01 Ethics for Engineers

Class Info

Integrates classical readings that provide an overview of ethics with a survey of case studies that focus on ethical problems arising in the practice of engineering. Readings taken from a variety of sources, such as Aristotle, Machiavelli, Bacon, Hobbes, Locke, the Founding Fathers, and the Bible. Case studies include written analyses and films that address engineering disasters, biotechnology, court cases, ethical codes, and the ultimate scope and aims of engineering. Students taking independent inquiry version 6.9041 expand the scope of their term project. Students taking 20.005 focus their term project on a problem in biological engineering in which there are intertwined ethical and technical issues.

This class has no prerequisites.

10.01 will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by D. Doneson and B. L. Trout.

This class counts for a total of 6 credits.

You can find more information at the MIT + 10.01 - Google Search site or on the 10.01 Stellar site.
