ESD.33 Systems Engineering (MIT)
Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems. It focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and reliability improvement while considering the complete problem including operations, performance, test, manufacturing, cost, and schedule. This course emphasizes the links of systems engineering to fundamentals of decision
"1500 Doomed": People's Press Reports on the Gauley Bridge Disaster
The deadly lung disease silicosis is caused when miners, sandblasters, and foundry and tunnel workers inhale fine particles of silica dust--a mineral found in sand, quartz, and granite. In 1935, approximately 1,500 workers--largely African Americans who had come north to find work--were killed by exposure to silica dust while building a tunnel in Gauley Bridge, West Virginia. Ordinarily, silicosis takes a several years to develop, but these West Virginia tunnel workers were falling ill in a matt
HST.921 Information Technology in the Health Care System of the Future (MIT)
This innovative, trans-faculty subject teaches how information technologies (IT) are reshaping and redefining the health care marketplace through improved economies of scale, greater technical efficiencies in the delivery of care to patients, advanced tools for patient education and self-care, network integrated decision support tools for clinicians, and the emergence of e-commerce in health care. Student tutorials provide an opportunity for interactive discussion. Interdisciplinary project team

2.72 Elements of Mechanical Design (MIT)
This course provides an advanced treatment of machine elements such as bearings, springs, gears, cams, and mechanisms. Analysis of these elements includes extensive application of core engineering curriculum including solid mechanics and fluid dynamics. The course offers practice in skills needed for machine design such as estimation, drawing, and experimentation. Students work in small teams to design and build machines that address real-world challenges.
1.050 Solid Mechanics (MIT)
1.050 is a sophomore-level engineering mechanics course, commonly labelled "Statics and Strength of Materials" or "Solid Mechanics I." This course introduces students to the fundamental principles and methods of structural mechanics. Topics covered include: static equilibrium, force resultants, support conditions, analysis of determinate planar structures (beams, trusses, frames), stresses and strains in structural elements, states of stress (shear, bending, torsion), statically indeterminate sy

Lecture 11: History of the Department of Engineering Science
Dr Alastair Howatson on the "History of the Department of Engineering Science". The lecture inclined to the earlier days of Oxford engineering rather than the more familiar recent history. The University produced engineers, not always so-called, long before 1908 and engineering was taught from 1886 although there was no formal school. Jenkin, the first professor, was elected in 1908 after years of frustrated attempts to found a chair; he combined high mathematical qualifications with years of in

Lessons From Somalia 2011
Dr. Ahmed Samatar is the James Wallce Professor of International Studies at Macalester College and expert on the Somali condition. In his presentation to the University of St. Thomas, he describes with great knowledge the confluence of crises that have led Somalia into what he describes as a catastrophic state. These include the destruction of Telos, the destruction of national institutions, the absence of effective leadership, and international military intervention. He concludes with lesson
SMU Alumnus Blake Mycoskie starts coffee company
SMU Alumnus Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS Shoes, announces the start of TOMS Roasting Company, which will give one week of clean water to a person in need for every bag of coffee you buy. For every pair of shoes the company sells, it gives a pair of shoes to needy children. Since the start of the company in 2006, it has donated more than 10 million shoes. With a similar philosophy, TOMS launched TOMS Eyewear in 2011.
The 50th Anniversary of the Presidential Report on American Women - Part Two
In 1961, President John F. Kennedy established a Presidential Commission to examine and report on the status of American women. The Commission, chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt from its beginning until her death in 1962, published its report in October 1963. The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University are partnering to host a two-day, dual-site conference to mark this important historical milestone and to reflect on the s
