Prerequisite
Zeal to learn the Subject
Rationale
The system configuration and parameters obtained through conventional processes have a large domain within which variable may change. However, all combinations of variable may not give the optimum performance of the system. It is desirable to obtain values of variables which makes the system to perform at its optimum state. Additional methods and processes as to be learnt in the course are required to determine values of variable for an optimum system.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Formulate a problem for determining optimum state of the Mechanical system.
2. Apply optimization techniques to simple and moderate systems to determine magnitude of variables for optimum performance of system.
3. Use modern methods of optimization.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
