  2. Ken Arnold and James Gosling, The Java Programming Language, Addison-Wesley, 1996.

Computer Use: Each student will write C++/Java programs based on material covered in lectures.

Laboratory Projects: Students design and implement programs for engineering applications.

Engineering Design Statement: Design projects will be related to engineering disciplines, such as: sparse matrix, symbolic manipulations, real-time system monitoring and control, multimedia applications, etc. At least one-half of the final grade depends on examinations and programming projects which involve design and implementation of open-ended problems that do not have fixed solutions.
