The main content of this course is to work with PC skills necessary for construction practice, including the creation of algorithms and programming fundamentals.
Emphasis is placed on the basics of typography, automatic generation of text fields, edit and change the look of text books, including a large graphic elements.
In the field of Engineering explains the concept of algorithms, basic programming, use spreadsheet functions to create graphs, sorting and evaluating the collected data, programming is used to create macros in Visual Basic.
All findings are applied to the task of building practice examples of specific applications.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Through computer technology to solve examples from engineering practice.
Apply attained knowledge in a particular software task of building fields.
Using software to sort, categorize, compare and illustrate the data.
Meet with the concept of algorithm, a solution of the algorithm of construction practice and use it in a programming language.
