Introduction to Computing for Engineers
3
This is an introductory course in programming and computing for scientists and engineers. The course introduces students to the following aspects of software engineering: specification, requirements, design, code, and test. This course uses a problem-solving approach for developing algorithms. The following topics will be included: data types and related operations, looping, decision, input/output, functions, arrays, files, and plotting.

Upon successful completion of this course the student should be able to analyze various scientific and engineering problems, design algorithmic solutions to these problems, and implement these algorithms. This course is intended to introduce the student to software design concepts, problem solving, and developing software solutions to scientific problems.

1. Understand the role of software design when solving problems using the computer.2. Design and implement algorithmic solutions to problems requiring data processing concepts of arithmetic, basic data types and operations.3. Design and implement algorithmic solutions to problems requiring basic control structures of sequences, conditions and repetition.4. Design and implement algorithmic solutions to problem requiring arrays and matrices.5. Design and implement algorithmic solutions to problems requiring linear search and sorting.6. Solve problems of intermediate complexity requiring the use of non-numerical data such as characters and strings.7. Apply a top-down design methodology to problems of complexity using functions.8. Design and implement algorithmic solutions to problems requiring the use of I/O with files.

9. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter. (a, b, e, i, k)

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
