Welcome to “Introduction to Engineering Concepts," a lesson that will introduce you to several STEM fields and help you build core skills that are helpful across many engineering disciplines. We also explain the engineering/research development process. This lesson assumes little to no prior engineering experience but does provide suggestions to increase the difficulty of the experiments should you desire to do so.
To accomplish these goals, we invited several subject matter experts from across MIT Lincoln Laboratory (LL) to discuss their involvement in interesting, topical projects. Our in-lesson experiments were inspired by three of these projects and demonstrate the real and varied possibilities of engineering.
