VBA/EXCEL is incorporated in an Engineering Freshman course in computer programming. The course presents generic programming concepts such as variables, arrays, loops, decisions and sub procedures. VBA/EXCEL and Visual Basic are used as the language of choice. This course involves a semester-long project which forces students to research some engineering, mathematics and scientific concepts at the same time as learning computer programming skills. This paper presents a description of this course and sample projects that are suitable for an engineering freshmen course in computer programming.
