This course is open to all graduate students. A good working knowledge of linear algebra, probability theory and ordinary differential equations is a must. The class requires expertise in Matlab and Linux. Although students will only receive one course unit, expect the course load to be approximately two course units (the conference-quality paper is the reward!).

Undergraduate students should consider taking CSE 390 (MEAM 420) http://www.seas.upenn.edu/~cse390. Masters students should consider taking MEAM 520, http://www.seas.upenn.edu/~meam520.

You can gage the pace of the class and level of competency expected of students from Project 1 (link to Sample Projects), which will be due **two weeks** into the semester.
