As long as you know the method to solve the question, he gives the marks you deserve. The course is related to Runge Kutta methods, Euler’s equation and other kinds of iteration methods. If you like maths, then this subject is fun, plus it has lots of application in the engineering field.”

The professor in charge was Mr Byju who was well-informed and wrapped up the course pretty quickly. The subject is not that hard to comprehend but is very tedious. It involves rigorous calculations so don’t even think about this OE if you can’t play around with numbers. It’s slightly harder to score due to the intense competition. Assignments are on similar bases as your core subjects. This subject helps out if you are in mechanical and take up subjects such as CFD.
