Marcovitz, Alan B., Ed.
Presented are two papers on computer applications in engineering education coursework. The first paper suggests that since most engineering graduates use only "canned programs" and rarely write their own programs, educational emphasis should include model building and the use of existing software as well as program writing. The second paper deals with the use of the computer to teach design in a mechanical engineering curriculum. A number of examples of computer-oriented projects for freshmen through seniors are presented. (SL)
