Close  0  3  1  1  CS 105  Introduction to Scientific Computing (1)This is a first course in computer programming for students with no prior experience. Students will learn the core process of programming: given a problem statement, how does one design an algorithm to solve that particular problem and then implement the algorithm in a computer program? The course will also introduce elementary programming concepts like basic control concepts (such as conditional statements and loops) and a few essential data types (e.g., integers and doubles). Exposure to programming will be through a selfcontained userfriendly programming environment, widely used by the scientific and engineering communities, such as Matlab.
