Course Description

This course aims to introduce the basic IT tools needed in Global Engineering fields, and to learn and practice a computer programming language. This course will focus on a scientific language, Fortran90, that will be used to make calculations and programs.


This course will grade the student's ability to program using Fortran90 via weekly reports and a final exam.

Course Goals

To understand basic IT processing capabilities in Global Engineering areas. To acquire basic logic and syntax Fortran90 programming knowledge.

Course Topics

Theme Class number of times Description
Overview 1 Use of computers in Global engineering, IT and future needs. Overview on using computer terminals and description of programming language (Fortran90).
I/O parameters and variables 1 Main parts of a basic program: input, calculations, output, intrinsic functions, etc. Data types and commands are also described.
Branches and Loops 2 Conditional branching to change the flow of a program and create repetition is explained. The structure of a program is explained by using a flow chart.
Exercise 1 Q&A practice of the topics studied so far.
Array 2 The array concept is explained for practical calculations, and its declaration and operation methods (declaration, I/O, multiplication, referencing) are explained via a programming exercise.
Basic I/O Concepts 2 The basics of reading and writing to disk files is presented. Methods and formats will be explained via an example.
Subprograms 2 Explanation of the use of subroutines and function subprograms to work in large-scale programs.
Exercise 1 Q&A practice of the topics studied so far.
Applied Calculation 2 Programming based on all previously explained examples of computational geo-engineering. A report will be submitted after an algorithm and flowchart are prepared dealing with all those topics (statistics, chart creation, random number generation, simulation, numerical methods, etc.)
Evaluation 1 Evaluation of knowledge.


Handouts will be provided.
