Aircraft Systems Engineering, Fall 2003
Aircraft are complex products comprised of many subsystems which must meet demanding customer and operational lifecycle value requirements. This course adopts a holistic view of the aircraft as a system, covering: basic systems engineering; cost and weight estimation; basic aircraft performance; safety and reliability; lifecycle topics; aircraft subsystems; risk analysis and management; and system realization. Small student teams "retrospectively analyze" an existing aircraft covering: key desi
Integrating The Lean Enterprise, Fall 2002
Addresses some of the important issues involved with the planning, development, and implementation of lean enterprises. People, technology, process, and management dimensions of an effective lean manufacturing company are considered in a unified framework. Particular emphasis on the integration of these dimensions across the entire enterprise, including product development, production, and the extended supply chain. Analysis tools as well as future trends and directions are explored. A key compo
Engineering Design and Rapid Prototyping, January (IAP) 2004
This course provides students with an opportunity to conceive, design and implement a product, using rapid prototyping methods and computer-aid tools. The first of two phases challenges each student team to meet a set of design requirements and constraints for a structural component. A course of iteration, fabrication, and validation completes this manual design cycle. During the second phase, each team conducts design optimization using structural analysis software, with their phase one prototy

Concepts discussed in the context of aerospace communication systems: aircraft communications, satellite communications, and deep space commun
Advanced Software Engineering, Fall 2002
A reading and discussion subject on advanced topics in the engineering of software systems. Focus on software development. Topics differ but are chosen from: software process and lifecycle; requirements development, specification and analysis; design principles; testing, formal analysis, and reviews; quality management and assessment; product and process metrics; COTS and reuse; evolution and maintenance; team organization and people management; software engineering aspects of programming langua
Aerodynamics, Fall 2002
This course extends fluid mechanic concepts from Unified Engineering to the aerodynamic performance of wings and bodies in sub/supersonic regimes. It generally has four components: subsonic potential flows, including source/vortex panel methods; viscous flows, including laminar and turbulent boundary layers; aerodynamics of airfoils and wings, including thin airfoil theory, lifting line theory, and panel method/interacting boundary layer methods; and supersonic and hypersonic airfoil theory. Cou
Dynamics, Fall 2004
Fundamental programming skills and theory, applications of computers to solve aerospace computational problems, and the use of software in aerospace vehicles and systems. Topics include: digital computer organization, structuring and planning algorithmic solutions to problems, programming and software engineering fundamentals, and introduction to discrete mathematics. Substantial programming assignments using Aero/Astro problems are an integral part of the subject.
Introduction to Aerospace Engineering and Design, Spring 2003
The fundamental concepts, and approaches of aerospace engineering, are highlighted through lectures on aeronautics, astronautics, and design. Active learning aerospace modules make use of information technology. Student teams are immersed in a hands-on, lighter-than-air (LTA) vehicle design project, where they design, build, and fly radio-controlled LTA vehicles. The connections between theory and practice are realized in the design exercises. Required design reviews precede the LTA race competi
Student Remarks 2006 MLK Breakfast
With a mix of bitterness and hope, these two young men address the legacy of Martin Luther King. David Lowry, a Lumbee Indian, grew up in southeastern North Carolina where the great majority of the Lumbee people reside. He speaks compellingly of his Lumbee Indian ancestry, and his need to be recognized at MIT and beyond as part

Who Controls Water? Conflict, Cooperation, and "Soft" Power Sustainability Seminar delivered on February 23, 2011 by UC Irvine Professor David Feldman, "Who Controls Water? Conflict, Cooperation, and "Soft" Power". Water is our planet's most precious resource. It is required by every living thing, yet a huge proportion of the world's population struggles to access it. Agriculture, aquaculture, industry, and energy depend on it - yet its adequacy and safety engender conflict. This conflict is likely to intensify as threats to freshwater abundan

Kid's Character Builder-Love-Part 2 of 2
In this video Mr. Conductor understands that Stevie gave up his heart ticket for the music machine to his sister Nancy. Cute songs are played. Some lyrics include " Love is walking with someone when someone needs a helping hand. Thank You for your gift of love". This video is a great resource for a teachable moment that arises in the classroom. This is also beneficial for a counseling group/individual lesson (5:03).
Architectural Design Workshop: Rethinking Office Development, Spring 2003
This is an interdisciplinary workshop, not a design workshop in the ordinary sense. It is certainly intended for graduate students in architecture but also for students in the Center for Real Estate (CRE), and for students in other related disciplines, who are interested in getting the most out of the design process but are not themselves necessarily designers. The main qualification for taking part in the Workshop is an interest in, and an urgent desire to do something about, specifying the typ
Architectural Design, Level III: A Student Center for MIT, Fall 2004
This studio will investigate the social, physiological and phenomenological elements of a student gathering place on the MIT campus. Whether it is simply for socializing or for more specific events, the student gathering place will serve as a refuge from the vigorous educational environment of the Institute, and reinforce the sense of "play" through a sensible organization of the program. The place will foster a casual discovery of a sense of "being": a reflection upon the student's own existenc
