Video Feature: Engineering Students Explore Spanish Bridges
With a trip to Spain as a high point, Princeton University undergraduates participated in a semester-long study of Spanish bridge design in the class "A Social and Multi-dimensional Exploration of Structures."
Instructors for the course, offered last fall, were Maria Garlock, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, and Ignacio Payá-Zaforteza, who was the William R. Kenan Jr. Visiting Professor for Distinguished Teaching of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Keller Center during the last academic year.
Focusing on eight bridges and working in groups, the students learned about design and structure as well as economical, political, cultural, environmental and geographical context. They presented their work to the class during site visits to the bridges over fall break.
