Unformatted text preview: 440:127 – Introduction to Computers for Engineers – Spring 2012 Course Description: This course is an introduction to MATLAB, a powerful programming language and development environment for engineers and scientists. Programming concepts in MATLAB are illustrated with various engineering application examples. Text: H. Moore, MATLAB for Engineers , 3d ed., 2011, Prentice Hall, ISBN-13: 978-0-13-210325-1. Software: MATLAB is installed in the BEST computer labs, the DSV and EIT Labs (ENG-B125, D110), and at the ARC Computing Center. To be able to work at home, students may purchase (recommended but not required) the stu- dent edition of MATLAB from: http://www.mathworks.com/academia/student_version/ . Alternatively, students may use Octave—a free look-alike version of MATLAB, available from http://www.octave.org . See also http://ecs.rutgers.edu/software/matlab_tutorial on how to run MATLAB re- motely using SSH. In addition, MATLAB can be run remotely from https://apps.rutgers.edu . Login at the BEST labs is with your RU NetID (your eden account). To be able to use the PCs in the DSV Lab, a SOE computer account will be assigned to you during your second recitation class. Additional information on the use of the DSV lab will be given at that time. If you register late, you must obtain an account from Mr. Mark Sproul, Manager, Engineering Computing Services, at http://ecs.rutgers.edu/ . Online Course Materials: Class announcements, homework assignments and submissions, lecture notes, example pro- grams and solutions, web links and other course resources, are accessible online at: http://sakai.rutgers.edu To get access to the Sakai course site, you must have an RU NetID and must be registered in the course. You may obtain a NetID from http://oit.rutgers.edu/ . Prerequisites: None, but some prior programming experience is helpful. Course Requirements: The final grade is based on three exams, homework, recitation, quizzes, and attendance: 1. Exam 1, Wed., Feb. 15, 2012 25 ± 5% 2. Exam 2, Wed., Mar. 28, 2012 30 ± 5% 3.
