Course Description

Engineering Sciences 96 is a group project selected to provide experience in the processes and practice of engineering design. It is the central activity of a design seminar which, ordinarily, is taken in the spring term of the junior year. This year, we are studying the Harvard University Health Service, working with its staff to optimize its information system. Professor Victor Jones has written an introduction to the problem.


Meets Monday 2-4 p.m. in Pierce Hall 209. The dress rehearsal is scheduled for Friday 3 May 2 p.m. - 10 p.m. tentatively in Cruft 318. We will move to Pierce 209 at 6 p.m. or earlier. If a group would like to meet with a professor or TF, please contact one of them to set up a meeting. Discuss topics with class members on the newsgroup harvard.course.es96.
