This text is written for the required freshman course and is designed to provide both a basic knowledge of computer concepts and capabilities and also an overview of the engineering career. This edition again focuses on Basic and Fortran as the primary programming languages, and includes new material on word processing systems, spreadsheets, computer-aided design packages and some high-level language applications. The colour material on computing and computers has been upgraded to reflect changes in technology, such as the growing importance of engineering work stations. It also includes an expanded discussion of number representation and round-off error, an improved Fortran section which features aspects of the new Fortran 90 standard and an electronic tool-kit which is integrated with the text material on data analysis and computer mathematics. This text is also available in a 5.25 DOS version (0-07-909916-5), or as a solutions manual (0-07-010923-0).
