4 units – Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters
Lecture: 3 hours
Discussion/Lab: 1 hour
Prerequisites: MAT 16A or MAT 21A (C- or better), MAT 16B or MAT 21B (C- or better) may be taken concurrently
Methodology for solving engineering problems. Engineering computing and visualization based on MATLAB. Engineering examples and applications.
Expanded Course Description:
Students are required in problem assignments to write substantial programs in the MATLAB technical computing environment.
Engineering Design Statement:
Students are asked to design programs to solve problems in which the problem statement is only partially defined. Students must describe and define the problem, define specifications, design and implement an algorithm to meet the specifications, test the algorithm with a variety of data, and redesign the algorithm as needed. The nature of the assignments require iterative refinements of the solution algorithm.
Relationship to Outcomes:
Students who have successfully completed this course should have achieved:
|Course Outcomes||ABET outcomes|
|An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering||A|
|An ability to identify, forumlate, and solve engineering problems||E|
|An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice||K|
