In Spring 2015, we underwent an interesting and unusual experiment in our EE curriculum, where in a control engineering course ([[EE-361]]) we exposed our undergraduate students to issues of environment and sustainability. Designed as a series of 50 min recitations, we exposed students to contextual and societal issues in water, agriculture, disease etc., even while the content has strong example-based connections to the main text. Large parts of the lectures are accessible to SSE students at the Junior / Sophomore level and to general SSE faculty.

Course Description

In Spring 2015, we underwent an interesting and unusual experiment in our EE curriculum, where in an introductory control engineering course (EE-361) we exposed our undergraduate students to issues of environment and sustainability. Designed as a series of 50 min recitations, we exposed students to contextual and societal issues in water, agriculture, disease etc., even while the content has strong example-based connections to the main text. Large parts of the lectures are accessible to engineering students at the Junior / Sophomore level and to general science & engineering faculty.

Venue
