Course description

Is all engineering created equal? In a sense, yes. Generally speaking, each of the discrete engineering processes we see today evolved from ancient engineering practices. Over 7,000 years ago, humans were defining problem spaces and creating solutions to solve the problems. While our approach today might seem more sophisticated, the core principles still hold true. The object of these discussions is to familiarize you with these engineering practices. The principles and practices presented herein will serve you well for both the certification prep and for building engineering knowledge.
