Wednesdays @ Noon: Analyzing Engineering Failures in Engineering Design Online

Drexel's Engineering Design projects require students to think about alternative solutions for problems within a design. But sometimes a proposed solution doesn't work. Understanding failures can help students build problem-solving skills needed to successfully complete design projects and even navigate their post-college professional lives.

During this webinar with expert Engineering Librarian Jay Bhatt, attendees will learn how to use DragonSearch and tools like Access Engineering, Engineering Case Studies Online, and Knovel to explore other researchers' failures and envision how these failures can lead to innovative solutions.


Presented by: Jay Bhatt, Librarian, Engineering
