FSEM: Hamline Engineering
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
How do engineers think? Are they any different from scientists? How can a Hamline education prepare me for potential engineering careers? What can I do with some super glue and a propane torch? These are just some of the questions we’ll tackle in this class. We’ll explore engineering challenges from lots of different directions, constantly checking that everyone has ten fingers and toes, of course. In order to understand as much as possible about the interconnections among engineering, science, and society, we’ll read about the history of engineering, talk with practicing engineers, tour engineering firms, and tackle various challenges. You’ll produce both written reports and YouTube videos to document your learning, including footage from our high speed cameras. You’ll also plan a year-long project that, if completed in the spring, can count as your General Physics I laboratory. Note that Calculus I (MATH 1170) is a co-requisite for this course.
