This course introduces the reader to Visual Basic Express Edition by Microsoft in an easy-to-understand fashion. While it is not intended to be a complete tutorial, the student will learn basics and become familiar with the code used to write many of today’s computer applications.

The course covers program development and mentions some of the tools used by programmers. Some Visual Basic controls are covered including the events, properties and methods of those controls. Additionally covered are some Visual Basic event procedures and, of special concern to engineers, numbers, arithmetic operators, variables and numeric expressions along with the built-in math functions and derived functions are highlighted as well.

Finally, there is information on inputs and outputs, loops (including For … Next loops) and formatting the output of a ListBox.

It is suggested that the student download the free version of Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition from the Microsoft website at: Visual Basic Express.
