• Abstract
    This course is based on the dozen nontechnical soft skills covered in Carl's book "Stuff you Don't Learn in Engineering School: Skills for Success in the Real World" (Wiley-IEEE Press, 2004). Perhaps the best single overview of the content ... a quote from Tom O'Neill, CEO of Parsons Brinckerhoff, on his giving the book to Dartmouth's 150 engineering graduates in 2005: "It is a good, useful publication about something that I believe very strongly. I was happy to see that someone has written a book about something that should be a fundamental precept for success in the world of engineering, and I was happy to share it with some young people who will shape the world for the next 40 years."

    These materials are designed to help younger engineers and emerging project managers -- indeed, engineers in all disciplines and all professionals -- learn the soft skills that are important to be more effective and happier in the real world.

  • Abstract
    In this course you will learn how to apply the concept of Risk Management to your business or your organization in order to prevent your exposure to the risks of loss due to the various risk factors that are involved in any engineering disciplines: Electrical, Software, Computer, Environmental, Mechanical, Biotech, and even Packaging. You will also learn how to use various controls in order to mitigate the severity of losses when they do occur. This tutorial is grouped into six topics. They are professional liability, risk identification and evaluation, loss prevention (including quality management) and loss control, new business (adjusting to change), contracts, and documentation. After completing this course, you will be able to: identify risk factors, implement loss prevention techniques, and deal with changes in the risk management context.
