Engineering in the Modern World

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
