Python for Mechanical Engineers

Python is a simple yet powerful programming language. Its simple syntax makes python easy to learn. Also, this language integrates well with all types of programming models such as imperative, object-oriented and procedural programming. Python has efficient high-level data structures. It is used in Mechanical Engineering in the areas of numerical analysis, thermodynamics, and computational fluid dynamics.

Course Objectives

This course teaches the language and syntax of Python and its applications in mechanical engineering. It covers the methods of writing automation scripts for CAD, and using python scripts to set up and run finite element studies in Abaqus, a software application used for both the modeling and analysis of mechanical components and assemblies and visualizing the results of finite element analysis.
