EML3035 Programming Concepts


“More than just teach you how to program, this course teaches you how to think more methodically and how to solve problems more effectively. As such, its lessons are applicable well beyond the boundaries of computer science itself. That the course does teach you how to program, though, is perhaps its most empowering return. With this skill comes the ability to solve real-world problems in ways and at speeds beyond the abilities of most humans.” – David Malan who teaches a general computer science course in Harvard to majors and non-majors of computer science.

This course introduces the student to the world of programming through MATLAB to develop scientific and engineering models. The student will be able to write beginner level programs that include conditional statements, repetition loops, input/output of files, modular programming including subprograms, and matrix manipulation.
