C054. Technology and You (3 s.h.) F Core: SBPrerequisite: Any first level Core Science and Technology (SA) course.
The practitioners of science are scientists. However, we never refer to the practitioners of technology as technologists, rather, they are always referred to as engineers. Therefore understanding the process of engineering is to understand the process of technological development. The engineer of today is either making an old technology better of developing a new technology. As will be illustrated in the readings, engineering is a human endeavor that has existed since the dawn of human kind. To understand engineering and its roots is to understand and appreciate one of humanityís greatest assets.
