1.201J/11.545J/ESD.210J is required for all first-year Master of Science in Transportation students. It would be of interest to, as well as accessible to, students in Urban Studies and Planning, Political Science, Technology and Policy, Management, and various engineering departments. It is a good subject for those who plan to take only one subject in transportation and serves as an entry point to other transportation subjects as well. The subject focuses on fundamental principles of transportat
Andy Griffee became Controller, BBC English Regions in March 1999, 11 years after joining the BBC as a Broadcast Journalist. Working out of the English Regions’ headquarters at BBC Birmingham, Griffee is responsible for over 3,000 staff based across England, and for 3,000 hours a year of regional television programmes, over 250,000 hours of local radio from the BBC’s 39 local stations and 42 Where I Live local BBC internet sites. Here he talks about his job and responsibilities at the BEEB.
This course presents a top-down approach to communications system design. The course will cover communication theory, algorithms and implementation architectures for essential blocks in modern physical-layer communication systems (coders and decoders, filters, multi-tone modulation, synchronization sub-systems). The course is hands-on, with a project component serving as a vehicle for study of different communication techniques, architectures and implementations. This year, the project is focuse
John Waite presents Radio 4’s award-winning investigative journalism programme Face The Facts, which has been a fixture in the Radio 4 schedules for 16 years and for which John has won 3 Sony Radio Awards as either Reporter or Broadcaster of the year. He also co-presents Radio 4’s daily consumer affairs programme You and Yours.
This course is designed to introduce first-year MBA students to the fundamental quantitative techniques of using data to make informed management decisions. In particular, the course focuses on various ways of modeling, or thinking structurally about, decision problems in order to enhance decision-making skills. Topics include decision analysis, probability, random variables, statistical estimation, regression, simulation, linear optimization, as well as nonlinear and discrete optimization. Ma
This course will lay a foundation in autism theory and autism technology that significantly leverages and expands the Media Lab's ability to pioneer new technology. Students will not only develop new technologies, but also understand, help, and learn from people with autism, a fast-growing group that the CDC identified in the year 2005 as involving an estimated 1 in 150 school-age children ages 6-21. Students will gain an understanding of the basic challenges faced by people diagnosed with autis
Horace Panter is a true icon of British music. In the 1970s Horace formed "The Specials" who went on to become one of the biggest bands of the 1980s. This year they are reforming to play a number of big shows, including headlining slots at Glastonbury and V Festival. In 1972 Horace started studying fine art at Coventry’s Lanchester Polytechnic, now known as Coventry University. In his second year there he met Jerry Dammers and soon they formed The Specials. They started playing in Coventry b
The aim of this course is to introduce the principles of the Global Positioning System and to demonstrate its application to various aspects of Earth Sciences. The specific content of the course depends each year on the interests of the students in the class. In some cases, the class interests are towards the geophysical applications of GPS and we concentrate on high precision (millimeter level) positioning on regional and global scales. In other cases, the interests have been more toward engine
In this undergraduate level seminar series, topics vary from year to year. Students present and discuss the subject matter, and are provided with instruction and practice in written and oral communication. Some experience with proofs required. The topic for fall 2008: Computational algebra and algebraic geometry.
This class is one of the core requirements for the Environmental Masters of Engineering program, in conjunction with 1.133 Masters of Engineering Concepts of Engineering Practice. It is designed to teach about environmental engineering through the use of case studies, computer software tools, and seminars from industrial experts. Case studies provide the basis for group projects as well as individual theses. Recent 1.782 projects include the MMR Superfund site on Cape Cod, appropriate wastewater
Stephen Garrett is responsible for over 100 hours of broadcasting a year. His list of production credits includes work from TV drama 'Psychos' to the movie 'Pure' and the first series of 'Spooks', he is also an Executive Producer on the US version of 'Life on Mars'. In this Coventry Conversation he talks about some of his work.
This course is the second of the three parts of our graduate introduction to semantics. The others are 24.970 Introduction to Semantics and 24.954 Pragmatics in Linguistic Theory. Like the other courses, this one is not meant as an overview of the field and its current developments. Our aim is to help you to develop the ability for semantic analysis, and we think that exploring a few topics in detail together with hands-on practical work is more effective than offering a bird's-eye view of every
