Introduction to computational tools and their use in solving engineering problems, analyzing data, and presenting scientific results. Techniques for the practical use of spreadsheets (XESS), mathematical and numerical analysis packages (MATLAB), symbolic algebra (MAPLE), and other Athena-based software packages are presented. Issues of computational accuracy and efficiency are discussed. Emphasizes problem solving using available software packages, not programming or algorithmic development. Enrollment may be limited.
