A Lever Long Enough: A History of Columbia's School of Engineering and Applied Science Since 1864

In this accomplished social historical past of Columbia University's university of Engineering and utilized technological know-how (SEAS), Robert McCaughey combines archival study with oral testimony and modern interviews to construct a serious and celebratory portrait of 1 of the oldest engineering colleges within the usa.

McCaughey follows the evolving, sometimes rocky, and now built-in dating among SEAS's engineers and the remainder of the Columbia collage pupil physique, school, and management. He additionally revisits the interplay among the SEAS employees and the population and associations of the town of recent York, the place the college has resided due to the fact that its founding in 1864. McCaughey compares the ancient struggles and achievements of the school's engineers with their present-day battles and accomplishments, and he contrasts their instructing and examine techniques with these in their friends at different free-standing and Ivy League engineering colleges. What starts as a localized heritage of a faculty striving to outline itself inside of a school recognized for its strengths within the humanities and the social sciences turns into a much broader tale of the transformation of the technologies right into a severe part of American know-how and education.

Getting It Right: R&D Methods for Science and Engineering

By Peter Bock

During the last decade, the writer has met with administrators of R&D departments in huge business organisations, who're annoyed through the shortcoming of coherent and constant methodologies in R&D initiatives. As an instantaneous outcome the writer was once requested to layout and current a seminar to supply R&D engineers and scientists a customary technique for accomplishing coherent, rigorous, understandable, and constant R&D tasks. the writer additionally learned that this education can be integrated in engineering and technology curricula in universities and faculties. To this finish, he designed and provided a pilot path for his division that used to be got enthusiastically via scholars who participated. This path has now turn into a required path for all doctoral scholars within the author's department.

This ebook has been designed to supply expert engineers, scientists, and scholars with a constant and sensible framework for the rigorous behavior and communique of complicated study and improvement initiatives. even if classes and coaching in learn tools are universal and customarily required of social technology execs, an unlimited majority of actual scientists and engineers have had no formal school room education or on-the-job mentoring on right strategies for learn equipment. Getting It correct emphasizes the excellent research of undertaking difficulties, specifications, and pursuits; using regular and constant terminology and systems; the layout of rigorous and reproducible experiments; the fitting aid and interpretation of undertaking effects; and the potent verbal exchange of undertaking layout, tools, effects, and conclusions.

Presents a regular technique for accomplishing coherent, rigorous, understandable, and constant R&D projects
Thoroughly researched to entice the desires of R&D engineers and scientists in industry
Will additionally attract scholars of engineering and technological know-how
