Course description
Programming is an essential step for engineers to implement novel ideas, analyze data, or performs tests and experiments. Therefore, this course aims at introducing the fundamentals principles of computer programming. To this end, students will learn how to write computer programs and to develop algorithms to solve complex problems for engineers. This class will teach pre-requisites for learning programming skills. It will first focus on the data structures commonly used in programming and the manipulation of data with computers. This class will rely on up to date programming language widely used in the industry and R&D departments such as Python, R, C, or Java. Practical Tutorials and exercises with computers will also be provided during this class.
Purpose of class

Evaluation method and criteria
"Assignment (40%), Midterm exam (30%) and Final exam (30%) are the criteria of the grade. More than 60% of the total score is needed for getting the course credit.
<Note>
Students are marked absent from the class if they are late regardless of the delay time.
If students are absent from more than one-third of the total number of classes, the credit of this course cannot be given to them.
Even though students are absent from the class whatever the reason, e.g. sickness, delay of public transportation systems, forgetting to bring the student ID card, it is counted as an absence.
