The course is delivered in two versions, for first year Civil and Chemical Engineering students. Course length is 6 hours and 10 hours, respectively. The course consists of "core" material on Mathematica, combined with specific engineering topics that differ in each department  for Civil, beams and vibrations, for Chemical, theory of gases and fluid flow. There are also some specific mathematical topics. The overall purpose of these courses is to show students that mathematical software like Mathematica is relevant to their studies. Eventually, we hope to strengthen this message by having Mathematica appear in lectures and assignments in other firstyear courses. These courses have been described in a series of articles, all available online at http
