Do you think you might want to check out computer science, but have no idea what intro course to take? Are you interested in learning what computer science is about and the ideas it has to offer tomorrow's citizens and scholars?
EM&CP is a computer science course intended to introduce students with no prior programming experience to the academic discipline of computer science and its relevance to other fields and modern life more generally.
You'll learn the basics of:
- Computation and programming
- Theoretical computer science and algorithms
Although you'll learn to read and understand short programs, the course will not teach or require advanced programming skills.

Introduction to Engineering Methods & Computer Programming is taught by Dr. Bruce Norton. The academic year schedule class meets daily for approximately 50 minutes beginning at 1:40 p.m. The spring semester block class meets daily for approximately 90 minutes beginning at 10:00 a.m.
EM&CP (EGR 125/127) is a computer science course intended to introduce students with no prior programming experience to the academic discipline of computer science and its relevance to other fields and modern life more generally. It is a single course in that EGR 125 and EGR 127 are taught concurrently.
In order to take EGR 125/127 a student should have successfully completed Algebra II at the high school level. Familiarity with trigonometry and matrices would help one with the course material. However, knowing trigonometry and/or matrix algebra is not a prerequisite for the course. Both topics are covered as needed as part of the course.
