Thread title says it all. Kind of a split from the following thread: http://cboard.cprogramming.com/c-pro...ring-well.html
As an ME student, we're required to take one programming class, which when I took it was a very intro level C course. Before that it was typically either Pascal or FORTRAN. At Ohio State, we use MATLAB heavily in the undergrad curriculum and FORTRAN/C/C++/Java for graduate work. Mainly FORTRAN.
