FSEM: Hamline Engineering
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
How do engineers think? Are they any different from scientists? How are engineers creative? What problem can I solve that will help people? These are just some of the questions we’ll engage with in this class. We’ll explore engineering challenges from lots of different directions, constantly sharpening our own definition of engineering. 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 women and men who are practicing engineers, and tackle various challenges. You’ll produce both written reports and YouTube videos to document your learning. 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.
