MAYMESTER: ENGINEERING COMMUNICATION IN PARIS

 

Engineering and the Sustainable City focuses on Paris, named by the National Geographic as one of the 20 most sustainable cities in the world. The Engineering Communication research topic will be the city itself. For this assignment, students will work in teams to research, analyze, and write about the engineered cityscape of Paris and the accompanying infrastructure. This course will expand students' understanding of sustainability issues affecting large cities around the globe and teach them to communicate effectively about the issues involved. Class excursions will include walking tours and tours of 2-3 museums.
