In the process of evaluating the arguments of these philosophers, you will develop your own philosophical and analyt
3.016 Mathematics for Materials Scientists and Engineers (MIT)
This course covers the mathematical techniques necessary for understanding of materials science and engineering topics such as energetics, materials structure and symmetry, materials response to applied fields, mechanics and physics of solids and soft materials. The class uses examples from the materials science and engineering core courses (3.012 and 3.014) to introduce mathematical concepts and materials-related problem solving skills. Topics include linear algebra and orthonormal basis, eigen
20.180 Biological Engineering Programming (MIT)
In this course problems from biological engineering are used to develop structured computer programming skills and explore the theory and practice of complex systems design and construction. The official course Web site can be viewed at: BE.180 Biological Engineering Programming.

This course introduces you to behavioral science theories, methods, and tools and provides opportunities to use and apply them to problems you will encounter in your work and career. The course material will begin with an overview of work and organizations in modern industrial society, and then examine individual behavior, move to behavior in groups or teams, and finally discuss organizations as a whole. It is expected that at the end of the course you will: (a) know something about managerial p
This course has been designed as a seminar to give students an understanding of how scientists with medical or scientific degrees conduct research in both hospital and academic settings. There will be interactive discussions with research clinicians and scientists about the career opportunities and research challenges in the biomedical field, which an MIT student might prepare for by obtaining an MD, PhD, or combined degrees. The seminar will be held in a case presentation format, with topics ch
Lambie-Nairn began his career in 1976. In the 80’s his company quickly built a reputation for broadcast design with the launch of Channel 4 in the UK. Arguably this identity changed the face of television branding, as it was the first time a TV company had used its on-air identity to say something about itself as a brand as well as being the first to be designed to work on and off screen. This led to many years of working with the BBC during which he was part of re-defining the BBC brand. He
