As part of the Engineering and the Arts initiative, several faculty have come together to teach this course for the first time in the Spring 2016. Read homepage article here. This course explores the parallels and intersections of design/composition in engineering and the arts, emphasizing a merging of artistry and systematic thinking. Students use what they learn to create as engineer-artists and artist-engineers. The course is organized around four modules: A) Visuals, B) Sound, C) Structure and 4) Movement. It is led by faculty from computer science, music, civil engineering, and mechanical engineering, with faculty from the Lewis Center for the Arts. ‘Transformations’ unifies the modules by engaging the different disciplines and allowing the course to serve as an introductory experience for students with diverse academic backgrounds.
