Engineers do calculations and keep track of data, project tasks, and other information that can be conveniently stored, manipulated and displayed in spreadsheets. Many engineering courses include introductions to using spreadsheets for engineering practice.

Spreadsheets – The main spreadsheet software applications used by engineers are Microsoft Excel, and OpenOffice.

Basics – data, rows, columns.
