Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student will be able to formulate the basic methods of simulation models realization on the digital computer, to create mathematical models of selected industrial processes with aim of classic simulation programs and with artificial neural networks exploitation. Student will get an overview of the basic principles of mathematic-physical modelling, similarity and modelling and of classic and artificial intelligence methods necessary for model realization.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Project work


The course deals with physical and mathematical modelling of industrial processes. Students are acquainted with analytical and experimental methods of identification of the mathematical description of the dynamic system and with methods necessary for implementation of the model on a digital computer. Students are introduced to artificial intelligence (fuzzy models, expert models, models of neural networks, genetic algorithms), attention is paid mainly to the models of neural networks and their application to the selected industrial processes.
