EMAT10007 Introduction to Computer Programming.



School/department Department of Engineering Mathematics
Faculty Faculty of Engineering


This unit follows on from the introductory unit "Introduction to Computer Programming", and aims to provide students who require a deeper understanding of the principles of computer programming with the strong implementation and problem solving skills they will need in subsequent learning.

By the end of the unit student will acquire basic software engineering and collaborative skills, so that they are able to develop computer code efficiently in groups.

Intended learning outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will:

  1. Be fluent in the fundamentals of programming in Python
  2. Be able to follow a structured approach to requirement specification and software design
  3. Be able to solve engineering problems using Python
  4. Know how to develop and use code collaboratively in groups
  5. Have supporting skills for making effective use of programming such as being able to use version control.

Teaching details

Teaching will be delivered through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous sessions, including lectures, practical activities supported by drop-in sessions or online computer laboratories and problem sheets.

Assessment Details

1 Summative Assessment (Coursework), 100% - this will assess all Intended Learning Outcomes
