6. Work and learn independently and communicate results effectively.
Important Information – Please Read Before Completing Your Work
All students should submit their work by the date specified using the procedures specified in the Student Handbook.
An assessment that has been handed in after this deadline will be marked initially as if it had been handed in on
time, but the Board of Examiners will normally apply a lateness penalty.
Your attention is drawn to the Section on Academic Misconduct in the Student’s Handbook.
Collaborative reports are explicitly forbidden and so the report submitted is expected to be unique for each student.
Any queries that you may have on the requirements of this assessment should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
No queries will be answered after respective submission dates.
You must ensure you retain a copy of your completed work prior to submission.

PROGRAMME: MECHANICAL ENGINEERING – BENG (HONS)
MODULE TITLE: ENGINEERING SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS 4
SUBJECT: NUMERICAL MODELLING AND COMPUTATION
COURSEWORK TITLE: RESIT COURSEWORK 3: OPTIMIZATION
You have joined a medium sized manufacturing firm as a junior engineer. The senior management wants
to see more use of optimisation techniques in the company and your line manager has tasked you with
comparing two optimisers. Elvis, another junior engineer, began this work last year but has since left the
company. You have been provided with his incomplete work in a .zip file. Take the .zip file and extract the
contents to your working folder in MATLAB.
