Systems Engineering - The Wright Way Lecture Event

You are here

Celebrate Engineer's Week by Attending a Talk on the Wright Brothers

Peter Jakab stated in his book Vision of a Flying Machine, the question remains "How were these two men, working essentially alone, with little formal scientific or technical training, able to solve a problem so complex and demanding as heavier-than-air flight in only a few short years, when it had defied better known experimenters for centuries?" Mark Eppler's book, The Wright Way, attempts to answer that question. Ron Mathis will share some thoughts on Systems Engineering the Wright way.
