Portal History

There is a hope to increase the amount of learning materials regarding engineering and technology, and this page has served as a framework to assist in the organization of content.

An engineering portal and technology portal are viewable on Wikipedia.

Selected Biography
Thomas Young, English scientist
Thomas Young (*June 14, 1773 – †May 10, 1829) was an English scientist, researcher, physician and polymath. He is sometimes considered to be "the last person to know everything": that is, he was familiar with virtually all the contemporary Western academic knowledge at that point in history. Clearly this can never be verified, and other claimants to this title are Gottfried Leibniz, Leonardo da Vinci, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Johann Wolfgang Goethe and Francis Bacon, among others. Young also wrote about various subjects to contemporary editions of the Encyclopedia Britannica. His learning was so prodigious in scope and breadth that he was popularly known as "Phenomenon Young."

Pre-Engineering Curriculum

An education in Engineering is built upon a foundation of mathematics and sciences. Every engineering discipline shares these fundamental studies at its core and every engineering student should be proficient in them:

  • Mathematics
  1. Primary and Secondary Mathematics
  2. Calculus
  3. Linear Algebra
  4. Differential Equations
  • Physical Science
  1. Basic Biology (for some disciplines)
  2. Basic Chemistry
  3. Basic and Levels 1 & 2 Physics

The Engineering Curriculum

The education of an engineering student must encompass the studies prescribed by the chosen discipline of study, yet will additionally require study of topics related to all disciplines and required in nearly every engineering field:

  • General Engineering
  1. Introduction to Technical Writing
  2. Introduction to Computer Science
  3. Computer Aided Design
  • Intermediate Engineering
  1. Intermediate engineering analysis

Graduate Engineering Curriculum

Technical Elective

  1. 3D Printing of Open Source Hardware for Science
Things you can do...
  • Add learning materials for the School of Engineering
  • Build courses based on available learning materials on Wikiversity
  • Add courses based on the classes that you are currently teaching/taking. Add a page on the contents of each day of class at the end of the day. You will learn the material better and help us all learn.
  • Create audio files, like Blues basics for use as background music in cisLunarFreighter
  • Create Foley Effects like Rocket Engines at liftoff and thrusters when manuevering cisLunarFreighter
  • A design study is needed () to support business planning for a LOX Plant at Lunar Boom Town.
