# ENGR 10 Computational Methods in Engineering (2014-2015)

#### ENGR 10 Computational Methods in Engineering

**ENGR 10 Computational Methods in Engineering (Credit Units: 4)** Procedures and procedure followers, algorithms and flow charts, computer languages, subprograms. Computer macro- and microelements, number systems. Methods of differentiation, integration, curve fitting, list processing. Error analysis. Must qualify in BASIC and FORTRAN at end of course through computer use. Corequisite: MATH 2A. Prerequisite: MATH 2A. Only one course from ENGR 10, ENGRMAE 10, EECS 10, EECS 12 may be taken for credit. (Design units: 0)

None.

Calculus

- Introduction to Computing
- Basic FORTRAN commands
- Flow control - Selective execution, Repetitive execution and iterations
- Input and Output
- Modular Programming: Functions and Subroutines
- Arrays: one-dimensional and multi-dimensional
- Advanced data types
- Introduction to Matlab
- Matlab as an engineering problem solving tool
- Programming Matlab

Meets for 3 hours of lecture and 1 hour of laboratory each week for 10 weeks.

Heavy computer usage. Students are required to develop computer programs for the solution of homework assigned on a weekly basis. The FORTRAN part of the course introduces the students to the UNINX operating system. Students log in to a remote Unix server. The MATLAB part of the course is executed on a Microsoft environment. No MATLAB toolkits are required.

None.

Contributes toward the Mechanical Engineering Topics courses and Major design experience. Contributes toward the Aerospace Engineering Topics courses and Major design experience.

Students are required to design robust software to implement algorithms developed in class extensively. FORTRAN is the primary language of the course. Matlab ideas are introduced at the end of the course. The projects are the implementation of an engineering design problem, as opposed to a computer science exercise. Design of the software is discussed at length during recitation lectures held on a weekly basis.
