EGR-101 - THE CREATIVE ART OF STRUCTURES  3 credits
Learn how to interpret and understand the built environment through technical, visual, and social analysis and critique of bridges, tall buildings, and structural designers.  The Creative Art of Structures is a modern history of structural engineering through the lens of excellence in design.  In a survey of some of the world's most iconic structures-towers, tall buildings, bridges, and thin concrete shells-structural engineering will be presented as an art form rather than just a technical endeavor. Innovative structures will be studied from engineering, architectural, cultural, and social perspectives.  Structural engineers including bridge engineers Eiffel, Roebling, Robert Maillart, Christian Menn, and Othmar Ammann will be featured, as will tall building engineer Fazlur Khan and thin shell designers Dieste, Candela, and Isler.  Open to all students in any major-no engineering background is necessary. 

Prerequisites: ENG 101 and MAT 097  (minimum grade of C) or placement at college-level Math.
