This course presents the process by which a line of code translates into machine action. It will introduce basic concepts utilized in software design, including a brief comparison between object oriented programming and non-object oriented programming. Common hardware and software issues that create inefficiencies or machine failures will be introduced, including sampling frequency and real time control systems. The schematic expression of software design and operation will be discussed, including Unified Modeling Language. Widely used software applications are introduced, including Computer Aided Design and Finite Element Analysis. These software packages assist in simulating and testing software and hardware applications during the design and development processes. Understanding the basic approaches of the applications, such as parametrics and modeling will better enable the engineer to maximize their utility and productivity.

This course is intended for practicing engineers of any industries whose daily work involves interactions with software engineers or professionals but have little or no practical experience in software design and implementation. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
