Taking inspiration from my father’s positive experiences while applying to college, I was ecstatic when accepted to the University of Houston for biomedical engineering. However, my eagerness was intersected with anxiousness. Engineering is known to be a notoriously difficult major, and I was still unsure what that realm consisted of. It was only after I attended an orientation hosted by the Cullen College of Engineering for prospective freshman students when my doubts were cleared. Through hearing experiences from enthusiastic upper-level engineering students, touring research labs, and meeting with encouraging professors, my sparked interest about what I was going to study for the next 4 years was solidified. I am having issues running code on my laptop/workstation because X isn’t installed or the right version.” ROT13 is a weak form of encryption that involves “rotating” each letter in a word by 13 places. To rotate a letter means to shift it through the alphabet, wrapping around to the beginning if necessary, so ‘A’ shifted by 3 is ‘D’ and ‘Z’ shifted by 1 is ‘A’.

Ideas, not artifacts. It’s not just the software and hardware artifacts we produce that will be physically present everywhere and touch our lives all the time, it will be the computational concepts we use to approach and solve problems, manage our daily lives, and communicate and interact with other people; What does “establish patterns” mean? It means don’t just fix today’s problem, fix tomorrow’s too. I briefly searched the internet and here is how Wikipedia describes it: Aggarwal enjoyed her SuperUROP research so much that she has decided to stay at MIT next year to pursue her MEng with Ram’s group. She will simultaneously be working on a theater arts thesis.Smart, insightful, and fascinating.' Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography reuse Write a set of instructions once and give them a name and then reuse those instructions as needed throughout your program. Writing a correct and valid algorithm to solve a computational problem is key to writing good code. Is it guaranteed to terminate? Yes. The input is of finite length, so after accepting the user’s number of words to enter and any characters typed on the keyboard, even if it is not a ‘word’ per say, the algorithm will stop.

Aggarwal’s path to electrical engineering included a few stops along the way, as she discovered new disciplines and ways of approaching problems. Inputs: A list of positive numbers. This list must contain at least one number. (Asking for the largest number in a list of no numbers is not a meaningful question.) I have long admired Engineers and if I had have been more ambitious and educated when I was younger, in an alternative Universe I might have been one. I have been saying to Michael since he was old enough to listen “become an Engineer”. He seems to have listened and has dreams of becoming an Aeronautical Engineer. I read this book imagining one day in the future I will have a language to speak about his Engineering Projects with him. Dad needs to be educated too. The examples were written in a biographical or novel style only alluding to the relevance of an engineering element slightly towards the end of each story. I really liked the small major feeling of materials science, and I wanted to bring that to electrical engineering,” she says. Aggarwal decided to start Voltage, a club for undergraduate electrical engineers.Computational Thinking is the thought processes involved in formulating a problem and expressing its solution in a way that a computer—human or machine—can effectively carry out. I would argue that being an engineer is more than just a job. To me, being an engineer is actually a state of mind and something that anyone can develop over time.

Computational Thinking is the thought processes involved in understanding a problem and expressing its solution in a way that a computer can effectively carry out. Computational thinking involves solving problems, designing systems, and understanding human behavior (e.g. what the user needs or wants) – thinking like an engineer. Computational thinking is a fundamental skill for everyone, not just for programmers because computational thinking is what comes before any computing technology. [1] One of the most powerful features of a programming language is the ability to use variables. A variable is simply a name that refers to a value as shown below, errors = 21 The engineer knows that you are never out of resources – only ever out of resourcefulness. They know that the best way to solve a problem is to use their head and to think up a solution. And they will often use this same approach when facing problems in their lives. Trying to impress the girl or guy of your dreams? Then come up with a plan! Not happy with where your life is right now? Then think up a solution in a number of stages that can make it better. If you apply enough thought and enough creativity to any problem, you can almost always find a good solution. Reverse-Engineering During her junior year, Aggarwal worked on a research project through EECS’s SuperUROP program with Rajeev Ram, professor of electrical engineering, in his Physical Optics and Electronics Group. The project she worked on was aimed at building a wearable optical health monitor.Is it guaranteed to terminate? Yes. The input is of finite length, so after accepting the user’s number, even if it is negative, the algorithm will stop. input Get data from the “outside world”. This might be reading data from a file, or even some kind of sensor like a microphone or GPS. In our initial algorithms and programs, our input will come from the user typing data on the keyboard. Fundamental, not rote skill. A fundamental skill is something every human being must know to function in modern society. Rote means a mechanical routine; So the engineer doesn’t give up when they face a problem but instead get to work on a solution. But they also go about approaching those problems in a different way, which also helps them to often overcome the perceived difficulties. Computational Thinking is what comes before any computing technology—thought of by a human, knowing full well the power of automation.
