Formal Definitions Engineering design is a methodological approach to solving a particular class of large and complex problems. – Barry Hyman, “Fundamentals of Engineering Design” The word itself has several uses. It's a verb and a noun, which can mean design as in the practice of design, but also the process of doing it, as well as the end-result. Confused? No wonder. A sentence coined by the American design historian John Heskett may help to make things clearer: “Design is to produce a design to design a design.” He might have added the fourth use of design as a noun, the 17th-century definition of “a design” as a dastardly plan. – Alice Rawsthorn, International Herald Tribune

    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.
