Description Engineering computing is an introduction to using computation to solve real problems. The unit also aims to instil sound principles of program design that can be utilised in many units throughout the students' course. The basic elements and structures of a high level language are taught. Students are exposed to numerous engineering problems and are encouraged to implement solutions using an algorithmic approach.
