Engineering in the Modern World

Michael G. Littman

Lectures and readings focus on bridges, railroads, power plants, steamboats, telegraph, highways, automobiles, aircraft, computers, and the microchip. We study some of the most important engineering innovations since the Industrial Revolution. The laboratory centers on technical analysis that is the foundation for design of 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 environment 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 30 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 with lab reports during the semester to meet their STL requirement.

Requirements/Grading:
Mid Term Exam - 15%
Final Exam - 25%
Lab Reports - 36%
Class/Precept Participation - 14%
Problem set(s) - 10%

Equivalent Courses:
CEE 102B, CEE 102A are considered equivalent courses and cannot be taken multiple times for credit.
