Introduction to Optimization course delivered by Visting Scholar

Dr Jimenez starting the second day of the course
Dr Jesus Jimenez, Lecturer in Computational Mechanics at ICAI School of Engineering, Madrid, delivered in August a short course on optimization to the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. The course content covered both classical and metaheuristics methods, providing an overview of most important methods and going in detail to explain simplex and genetic algorithms.

It was attended by 19 people from all engineering disciplines, mostly PhD students but also postdocs and three academics.

Dr Jimenez was a Visiting Scholar hosted by the BRE Center for Fire Safety Engineering. The course and his one-month visit were funded by the European Union.
