This subject provides engineering students with necessary computing knowledge, numerical techniques and programming skills as well as understanding of using knowledge, skills and tools for engineering problem solving. The subject introduces students to basic knowledge and skills on computational numerical methods, excel spreadsheet and Visual Basic programming with no assumed knowledge of programming. It requires students to develop understanding on the application of such knowledge and skills for civil and mechanical engineering problem solving. Examples are chosen from within an engineering context and serve to reinforce material covered in other subjects in civil and mechanical engineering.
