Science of High Technology – ENGR05 Section 02, Spring 2010 Page 2 of 12 Course Description Scientific principles underlying the design of commonly used high technology devices and systems such as the computer, cell phone, IPODS, cameras, and the Internet. Emphasizes practical applications of scientific principles to contemporary engineering products and services. Purpose of the Course This course focuses on technologies you use everyday to demonstrate scientific principles. Many of you don’t intend to become scientists or engineers but all of you will have to make decisions involving technological and scientific issues in your life. This course will help you to understand basic scientific concepts and see how they are applied in the world. The course will help you understand and appreciate the technological advances that impact your life and work. After taking this course,you should be able to incorporate scientific knowledge into the workplace and everyday life experiences. Many of the technologies discussed in this class are ones that students naturally wonder about. How does your microwave oven heat up food? Why is your radio reception bad in some places and not others? And why can birds happily land on a high voltage electrical wire? In this course, we will cover technologies including batteries, radio, television, cell phones, IPODs, microwaves, and compact disk players and show you the science behind these technologies. In this way, you can use the real object (such as the cell phone or the microwave) to discuss physical concepts. It is our hope to demystify high technologies in this class.
