1 University of California, Berkeley Department of Mechanical Engineering Fall Semester 2008 Instructors: M. Frenklach and R. Horowitz E7 - Introduction to Computer Programming for Scientists and Engineers 1 Course objectives E7 is an introductory course on computer programming for lower-division students in science and engineering. The principal goal of the course is to teach basic computer programming concepts and apply them to computer-based problem-solving methods. The course stresses hands-on computer programming using MATLAB, a powerful high-level programming environment. 2 Course Format E7 consists of classroom lectures, computer laboratory sections, and classroom discussions. Lectures and discussions are delivered by faculty instructors, while laboratory sections are led by graduate student instructors (GSIs). Lectures begin on August 27th, and are held Mondays and Wednesdays in 10 Evans. The lecture time for Section 1 is from 12:00pm to 1:00pm, while the lecture time for Section 2 is from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. However, since the same lecture is given at both sections by the same instructor, you can attend either time, as long as there is seating space available. Discussions begin on Friday September 5 th , and will be held most Fridays in 105 Northgate during two times: 12:00-1:00 and 1:00-2:00. During discussions we will cover additional exercises, present and discuss the upcoming homework/laboratory assignments and answer questions. Since the same material will be discussed at both times by the same instructor, you can attend either time, as long as there is seating space available. Laboratory sections begin on the second third of instruction, (starting Monday, September 8 th ). IMPORTANT: To register for E7, you must be enrolled in a laboratory section. Also, you may only attend the laboratory section in which you are officially enrolled.
