This book presents introductory programming and software development concepts to engineers using a disciplined approach. It provides numerous case studies and programming projects based on real-world examples from a wide range of engineering disciplines, making the material relevant to what students will encounter in their careers. The authors introduce implementations of basic numerical and statistical methods commonly used by engineers. The book focuses on many aspects of software engineering, establishing early the connection between good problem-solving skills and effective software development. The five-phase software development method is presented in Chapter 1 and applied in every subsequent Case Study throughout.

C Program Design for Engineers presents material in an order that meets the needs of a beginning programmer, rather than by the structure of the C programming language. For example, the coverage of pointers is simplified by discussing them over several chapters, thus allowing the student to absorb the intricacies of pointer usage a little at a time. This approach makes it possible to present fundamental concepts using traditional high-level terminology―outputparameter, array, array subscript, string―and makes it easier for students without prior assembly-language background to master the many facets of pointer usage.

From the Back Cover:

C Program Design for Engineers teaches introductory concepts and theory to engineers. It uses a procedural approach to solving engineering problems using the standardized programming language, C.

The text contains thorough, yet simple coverage of the basic control structures in early chapters. C Program Design for Engineers is geared for a first course in programming to engineers. It assumes no prior knowledge of computers or programming and it prepares the student step-by-step to tackle the challenging case studies and programming projects of later chapters. This text uses widely accepted software engineering methods to design program solutions as cohesive, readable, reusable modules.

  • Based on Joan Horvath's industrial experience at Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, the examples and programming projects cover a wide range of engineering applications.
  • Addresses current issues such as cellular telephone network development, space exploration, and image enhancement through exercises which are unique representations of realistic problems.
  • Introduces implementations of basic numerical and statistical methods commonly used by engineers.
  • Includes the classic pedagogy of all Koffman and Hanly texts: syntax displays, program style section, case studies, end-of-section exercises, common error sections, chapter reviews, quick check exercises, and programming projects.


About the Author:

Jeri R. Hanly is a member of the computer science faculty at the University of Wyoming. She has developed software for target recognition in collaboration with naval researchers in China Lake, California and has taught software engineering seminars for professional developers of computing systems in the U.S. and Canada.

Elliot Koffman is a professor of computer and information science at Temple University. He is one of the country's foremost CS educators, a former chairman of the ACM Task Force for introductory programming methods courses, and author of a number of successful language texts in Modula-2, FORTRAN, in addition to his four editions of Pascal and Turbo Pascal.

Joan C. Horvath received a B.S. in aeronautics and astronautics from M.I.T. and her M.S. in mechanical, aerospace, and nuclear engineering from U.C.L.A. She has held positions at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, in flight project operations, software development and scheduling.
