LEGO MINDSTORMS SOFTWARE
“Not-Quite-C” (NQC) programming environment for the RCX written by John
Hansen. This is an enhanced version of
that originally developed by
Mark Overmars at the
Multithreaded, C-like programming language for the Mindstorms RCX processor, written by Dave Baum. You do not need to download this separately. It is included in the bricxcc download above. It can, however, be installed and used independently as a command line tool.
This is a very helpful tutorial on programming with NQC.

See what the principal electrical and computer engineering professional organization has to say about the LEGO MINDSTORMS. Here is more information on the IEEE. You can become a student member of the IEEE through the UD student chapter.
Electronic circuit simulation software. Allows you to draw circuit schematics and test the circuits via computer simulation. The student version is free and useful for small circuit applications. The unlimited professional version is available in the ECE department.
visualization, numerical computations, image processing, signal processing,
symbolic mathematics, linear systems analysis, etc. My feeling is that if an engineer knows only
one programming language/mathematics package, it should be MATLAB. The MATLAB student version is $99.00 and can
be ordered on line or through the UD bookstore.
The professional version of MATLAB is available throughout the
Tutorials on Microsoft Office at UD’s
