Course Description

Introduces fundamental computational concepts and practices with algorithmic thinking in the context of engineering problem solving. Explores problem-solving skills, algorithm design, debugging, and writing programs using universal design principles. Examines limitations in these problem solutions related to social or structural inequities. Applies these skills and insights through applications to engineering problems.

Course learning outcomes

1. Adapt technical solutions from related problems to current computational problems in engineering.
2. Apply best practices to implementation of computational solutions to engineering problems.
3. Apply coding skills to engineering problem solving.
4. Distinguish the roles of modeling and analysis in engineering practice.
5. Assess limitations within computational solutions as they relate to social or structural inequities.
6. Modify an academic and professional plan based on experiential engineering activities.
