HST318 Spring 2016B Brittany Wojciehowski Dr. Peter Van Cleave HST 318 History of Engineering 3/20/2016 Unit 1 Capstone Option 2 The Erie Canal has been called America’s first school of engineering. How successful do you think it was as a “school”? What would you identify as its major strengths as a school? What would you identify as its most significant limitations as a school? In a separate paragraph, choose a field of engineering you are familiar with (options include but are not limited to mechanical engineering, civil engineering, software engineering, and electric engineering) and state whether you think a modern John Jervis--a dedicated and intelligent, but unschooled person--could succeed in this field of engineering without attending college, and explain why. Note: if you are not sufficiently familiar with any field of engineering to answer this question, you may substitute another profession that you know more about, such as teaching, medicine, management, sales, architecture, etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
