HNR-213 - Creative Art of Structures

3 credits

Learn how to interpret and understand the built environment through technical, visual, and social analysis and critique of towers, bridges, tall buildings, and vaulted roof structures. Creative Art of Structures is a historical survey of structural engineering through the lens of design excellence. The world's most iconic structures will be studied from engineering, architectural, cultural, and social perspectives and structural engineering will be presented as an art form rather than just a technical endeavor. Open to all students - no engineering background is necessary.

Prerequisite(s):  ENG 101, MAT 087 (minimum grade C-) or placement at Algebra II on the math placement test.
