Data Analysis and Visualisation - ENGG255

This unit provides knowledge and skills for further study in electrical and mechanical disciplines of engineering. Sound engineering relies on adequate modelling and visualisation of data. This unit develops the concept that engineering data consists of discrete and vectored quantities that is fit to a model of reality.

Foundation knowledge and skill in computer programming, electrical and mechanical concepts, and mathematics is assumed. The concept of data as discrete numerical vectors is developed using computer controlled interfaces to acquire real electrical and mechanical measurements. Spreadsheets and numerical computing environments, are introduced and used to manipulate, process, view and present data. The adequacy of simple models of transient responses, temperature dependence, and other physical process is explored. Judgement is developed in the appropriate visualisation of data to best expose physical processes and check the design of experiment.

The concepts developed in this unit are required in the advanced engineering units for treatment of modelling, simulation, optimisation, and computer aided design. The skills in this unit also will be used in subsequent engineering units dealing with presentation of data.
