An introduction to computer science and problem solving using procedural programming. This course introduces the basic computer science and computer programming principles of algorithms, abstraction, encapsulation, variables, conditional branching, repetition, functions, recursion, and elementary data structures. These concepts are applied to problem solving applications such as data analysis and visualization, simulation, text processing, and image processing. An introduction to MATLAB leverages the basic principles in an Engineering-specific setting.


Mathematics B30 or Foundations of Mathematics 30 or Pre-Calculus 30.
