MAYMESTER: INTRO TO ENGINEERING DESIGN AND GRAPHICS

 

This course explores the basics of engineering design and how it has shaped and influenced not only the products we use, but also the environment we live in. The course will incorporate the location of Freiburg, with a history extending back more than 1000 years, as our laboratory to examine design from ancient to the modern in order to understand the development of culture and the interconnections between design and culture. Freiburg, Germany, a university town, is a center of progressive thinking on environmental issues and sustainability. Freiburg is known for taking the lead in the development of eco-friendly technologies and architecture. With its extensive use of solar energy and other renewable sources, the city now attracts researchers and environmental organizations from around the world. Course meets major requirement in aerospace, civil and mechanical engineering.
