i'm probly going to attend McMaster for Biomedical Engineering this fall. and i attended their open hosue today to see if i can gather some last minute first hand information./ i asked around about the computer requirements but nothing seems to be able to come up with definitive answers. i need to know this since i'm planning to get my first ever mac for this...and i just need to make sure that there won't be any problems.
here's a list of softwares that MES (McMaster Engineering Society) listed on their site as being reccommended for first year Eng. but i dunno anything beyond that, except that some girl mentioned MatLab being important. is THIS
the OS X version of it?? there's only one math software called matlab right? lol.
as for that MES list, here's the list:
-Microsoft Office 2000 – So much more than just word processing
-Norton/McAfee Anti-Virus – You WILL get viruses otherwise!
-AutoCAD – Engineering 1C04
-Borland Turbo C++ (DOS) – Engineering 1D04
-Maple 7– Mathematics 1NN3 (Calculus 2)
-Adobe Photoshop 6 – Picture editing software
-Corel Draw 10 – Microsoft Paint times a million
-Fax software – No need for a fax machine
i'm guessing they can be replaced by these??
-Office Mac 2004
-AutoCAD?? what's the substitute for mac here???
-Borland Turbo C++ for mac?? does it exist? or maybe xCode or other compilers??
-Maple 7?? what can i sue to replace this??
-Photoshop - no biggie
-Corel Draw - no biggie
so yea...what can i use to replace AutoCad, Borland Turbo C++ and Maple???
i would really appreciate some mcmaster engineers giving some input for this. especially anybody who might be in biomedical engineering. but i'd be greateful for any and all comment/advice/suggestions.
thx guys. [img]smile.gif[/img]
