Provides a detailed overview of the chemical transformations that control the abundances of key trace species in t

Fall 2013; co-taught with Colette Heald and Eben Cross

This class aims to foster solution‐oriented design to address real‐world problems, meeting a set of realistic constraints. Specifically, students in the class will explore a concrete example of the “smart city” concept. This will be achieved via a hands‐on design experience including research, design, prototyping and testing of a sensor network for the MIT campus.

Spring 2014; co-taught with Colette Heald and Eben Cross

Synthesizes prior design education through a semester-long design project, concurrent implementation project, lectures and related assignments. Students who have specialized in structural, geotechnical, engineering systems, and environmental areas form mixed teams to work on the projects.
