Update to 8.01T Curriculum

As freshmen are considering their academic options for the coming semester, they should be aware of an exciting new development in the new Physics mechanics class.

8.01T will join forces with 2.007 and offer as part of the class, “Design Engineering Challenge: ‘The Big Dig’ 2.007.” The Spring 2004 contest table for 2.007 and possible machine concepts will be the focus of Design Engineering Challenges for 8.01T. This real-world case will allow students to use their physics understanding to design a potential winning strategy and concept machine.

As an added incentive, the student groups with the best designs from the 8.01T class will be allowed to take 2.007 in the spring as freshman (though they will have to take the machine shop/computer tools course 2.670 in IAP) if they so desire.
