2304/ENGR 2304 Programming for Engineers (3-0). Programming principles and techniques for matrix and array operations, equation solving, and numeric simulations applied to engineering problems and visualization of engineering information; platforms include spreadsheets, symbolic algebra packages, engineering analysis software, and laboratory control software.
2308/ENGR 2308 Economics and Sustainability of Infrastructure (3-0). An introduction to the physical infrastructure required to support a modern economy in its social, political, and economic context. The student is introduced to the concept of the time value of money and methods used for determining the comparative financial desirability of infrastructure alternatives as well as the political and fiscal aspects of funding infrastructure projects. The course provides the student with the basic tools required to analyze alternatives in terms of their benefit and cost to society. The course will address aspects of sustainability and will provide the student with the background to enable them to make informed decisions about public and private infrastructure projects.
Prerequisite: Mathematics 1314 or 1324.
