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.
