Kevin A. Mussmacher, P.E.
Newly graduated, and many seasoned, Engineers are ill prepared to deal with the vagaries of the “Real World” of effective project design. They spend a lot of time losing their idealistic view of the glamour of engineering design as they work on some mundane task, rather than designing the next iPhone or personal teleportation device. Once that reality hits them, they are ready (if not surprised) to learn that projects consist of more than making cool designs.
This course will introduce, and give some detail to, the other real-world considerations involved. It will also attempt to show how to present, implement and enforce these concepts, while showing the Engineer why they are beneficial to accomplishing the project and to increasing his or her abilities and value.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
