CST 138 - Structured Programming in C++ for Engineers

Students will demonstrate a knowledge of C++ by writing programs to solve engineering problems such as:  statistics, Monte Carlo method, best fit straight line, heat flow, center of mass, complex numbers, matrices, and electrical circuits. 

The course will illustrate the basics of C++ including:  structures, recursion, pointers, dynamic memory allocation, linked lists, OOP, classes, overloading, encapsulation and polymorphism, inheritance, and composition.
