This lecture is part of a course from The Great Courses called Everyday Engineering: Understanding the Marvels of Daily Life taught by Professor Stephen Ressler, Ph.D.. This course and over 300 other courses can be accessed with a subscription to The Great Courses Plus.


In this opening lecture for The Great Courses course, Professor Stephen Ressler lifts the veil on many of the modern marvels we take for granted. As Professor Ressler demonstrates, the products of engineering that have the most impact - from infrastructure, to vehicles, to electrical, environmental, and communications technology - have become so abundant in our daily lives, that we hardly ever take a moment to question how everything works. This course’s goal is to explore how the science behind these various engineering disciplines has been put to the daily task of enhancing human life. To make his subject more manageable, Professor Ressler focuses on the typical modern home and the daily commute as laboratory examples of how engineering technology has fundamentally changed the ways we interact with the world.
