Objectives

Algorithmic approaches to problem solving and computer program design for engineers. Engineering and mathematically-oriented problem sets will be emphasized, including nonnumeric applications. Searching, sorting, linked lists, and data typing will be introduced.  May not be applied toward a major in computer science.
