CMPET 301 Algorithmic Processes for Electrical Systems (3)

Algorithmic Processes for Electrical Systems is a required course for junior-level students in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) baccalaureate degree program. It is essential for Electrical Engineering Technology students to acquire a working knowledge of a computer language commonly used in practice. This course will prepare the student to analyze a problem and implement a structured procedural design and also an object-oriented design. This course is a follow-up course to CMPET 005 and CMPET 211, and prepares the student for several more advanced courses in the program related to computer analysis of circuits and systems.

This course covers properties of algorithms and languages, software development process, notations for describing algorithms, applications of object- and procedure-oriented languages to electrical and electronic problem solving, high-level language programming, integrated development environment, and structured programming. Laboratory exercises parallel lecture material.
