Course Code ENG 1002 Course Programming (Matlab and C) Coordinating Unit Technology Education Centre Term Semester 2 Level Undergraduate Location/s North Terrace Campus Units 3 Contact Up to 6 hours per week Available for Study Abroad and Exchange Y Incompatible COMP SCI 1012, COMP SCI 1101, COMP SCI 1201, CHEM ENG 1011, ENG 1003, C&ENVENG 1012 Restrictions Core course for students in BMech, BEE, BCS, BSoftware, BMaCompSc, BMaSc, and BMaSc(Adv) and double degrees with these primary Programs. Course is available as an elective to students in other programs. Course Description All modern engineering projects use programming for data analysis and problem solving. This course introduces the fundamental concepts of procedural programming using the MATLAB programming environment. Programming topics include: MATLAB syntax and semantics; data types, control structures, and functions; working with files and data; and the mechanics of running, testing, and debugging code. Problem-solving topics include: the role of algorithms in the problem-solving process; implementation strategies for algorithms; and the concept and properties of algorithms. This course continues with a C module, which introduces low-level programming concepts including memory and pointers, used for microprocessor programming in later years.

This course has an assumed workload of 10-12 hours per week. 6 hours are supported with face to face activities and an additional 4-6 hours of practice, review and preparation is expected.
Learning Activities SummaryLearning activities are in two groups:
1) Formative activities: these activities are designed to help you learn. The focus is on practice and personal feedback to help you deepen your understanding.
Online videos and quizzes
2) Summative activities: these activities are designed primarily to assess your learning. The focus is on assessment. These activities will have general group feedback but not individual detailed feedback.
Weekly mastery quizzes
- Assessment must encourage and reinforce learning.
- Assessment must enable robust and fair judgements about student performance.
- Assessment must maintain academic standards.
