Engineering in the Modern World

David P. Billington
Michael G. Littman

Lectures and readings focus on bridges, railroads, power plants, highways, airports, harbors, automobiles, aircrafts, computers, and the microchip. The laboratory centers on the scientific analyses that are the bases for these major innovations. The experiments are modeled after those carried out by the innovators themselves, whose ideas are explored in the light of the social contexts within which they worked.

Sample reading list:
D. P. Billington, The Innovators
D. P. Billington and D.P. Billington Jr, Power, Speed and Form

Reading/Writing assignments:
This section of CEE102 has approximately 40 pages to read out of the course text(s) each week. In addition, students complete a set of homework problems every other week, and complete 5 experimental labs during the semester to meet their STL requirement.
