ENG 276IN - Computer Programming for Engineering Applications II

3 Credits, 5 Contact Hours
2 lecture periods 3 lab periods

Continuation of ENG 175IN . Advanced programming in C for engineering applications. Includes review of C programming, memory concepts, algorithms and analysis, and an introduction to C++

Prerequisite(s): ENG 175IN  

Course Learning Outcomes
  1. Demonstrate the ability to develop, debug, and test large software projects in both the C and C++ programming languages to solve engineering problems.
  2. Demonstrate the ability to analyze, compare, and select appropriate data structures and associated algorithms for engineering applications.
  3. Demonstrate software engineering best practices and object-oriented design and programming.

Performance Objectives:
  1. Preprocess, compile and/or link programs.
  2. Use project management tools (e.g. IDEs(Integrated Development Environment), Cmake, etc).
  3. Use libraries and code re-use across executables.
  4. Debug compiled programs.
  5. Understand and use applications with pointers and memory addresses.
  6. Pass by value and pass by reference.
  7. Allocate and manage memory.
  8. Distinguish between stack and heap in software programs.
  9. Utilize trees, queues, stacks, heaps, and graphs.
  10. Use appropriate algorithms for sorting, searching, hashing, traversals, and shortest path.
  11. Design, analyze and implement algorithms.
  12. Asymptotic analysis of algorithms.
  13. Construct/delete objects in C++.
  14. Use basic C++ operations and commands.
  15. Use Standard Template Library (STL) Classes.
