299: Applied Trajectory Optimization Certificate - NPS Online
This certificate program provides students a suite of practical mathematical tools for applying trajectory optimization techniques to solve various problems in engineering design and optimization. The coursework equips students with an ability to model various dynamical systems and formulate a collection of dynamic optimization problems that explore the engineering trade-space. Two of the four-course sequence may be chosen as track electives to meet a student's particular interest in an engineering system. A capstone course provides the mathematical and computational framework that are necessary to apply the tools to address a trajectory optimization problem related to a practical system chosen by the student.
