Abstract:

This paper is about various aspects of the Computational Thinking and Problem Solving course offered to entry-level undergraduate engineering students across 7 engineering disciplines at Amrita University, India. The various aspects include the motivations for offering the course, aims and objectives of the course, course design as well as the delivery and assessment of the course. The paper also shares the experience of conducting the course to a very large number of students and the lessons learnt during the process. © 2017 IEEE.
