Development of fluency in Information Technology (IT) for productive use, designed to complement the students areas of study. The relevance of IT and computing in daily life, emphasized through collaborative learning about such topics as image representation, high definition video transmission, digital voice encoding, MP3 files, identity protection for online shopping, data security in social networks, robotics, game and animation creation, virtual worlds. Introduction to programming using non-traditional, intuitive programming environments such as smartphones and LEGO Mindstorms.
This course introduces students to the structured programming language C++ which is essential for engineering applications and problem solving. Programming language concepts, arrays, structures, and subprograms will be included.
The goal of this course is to familiarize engineering students with fundamental principles of computer aided design and perform basic engineering analysis, such as stress and deflection using solid modeling and parametric design using Pro-Engineer software.
This course introduces students to various engineering disciplines, and common engineering science foundations of all branches, teaming, ethics, and communication. Fundamental principles of various engineering disciplines will be taught using one central problem from each discipline.
