STC/EGR/MUS 209 explores the parallels and intersections of design/composition in engineering and the arts, emphasizing a merging of artistry and systematic thinking. Students will use what they learn to create as engineer-artists and artist-engineers. The course includes lecture-demonstrations, hands-on creative activities, discussions on aesthetics, and design projects. The course is organized around four modules: Visuals, Sound, Structure and Movement, led by faculty from COS, MUS, CEE, MAE with faculty from the Lewis Center for the Arts. ‘Transformations’ unify the modules by engaging the different disciplines and allowing the course to serve as an introductory experience for students with any academic background.
