|Textbooks:|| Behrouz A. Forouzan & Richard F. Gilberg, Computer Science A Structured Approach Using C, Third Edition, Thomson, 2007, ISBN 0-534-49132-4
|Description:||Basic concepts and applications of software programming for solving engineering problems. Topics include techniques for developing structured algorithms, data input and output, conditional statements, loops, recursion, functions, arrays and elementary concepts in mathematical programming. Examples, homework, and applications of programming concepts make extensive use of the C programming language.
|Goals:||To guide the student in the development of fundamental programming and algorithmic skills necessary to solve engineering problems with a computer.
