The Technology Portal serves to organize engineering and technology content. Wikiversity participants interested in engineering and technology are invited to create and develop learning projects & learning resources and help to organize them.
Thomas Young (*June 14, 1773 – †May 10, 1829) was an English scientist, researcher, physician and polymath. He is sometimes considered to be "the last person to know everything": that is, he was familiar with virtually all the contemporary Western academic knowledge at that point in history. Clearly this can never be verified, and other claimants to this title are Gottfried Leibniz, Leonardo da Vinci, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Johann Wolfgang Goethe and Francis Bacon, among others. Young also wrote about various subjects to contemporary editions of the Encyclopedia Britannica. His learning was so prodigious in scope and breadth that he was popularly known as "Phenomenon Young."
The histories of Wikiversity pages indicate who the active participants are. If you are an active participant in developing this portal, you can list your name here (this can help new portals grow and the participants communicate better; for mature portals a list of participants is not needed).
An education in Engineering is built upon a foundation of mathematics and sciences. Every engineering discipline shares these fundamental studies at its core and every engineering student should be proficient in them:
The education of an engineering student must encompass the studies prescribed by the chosen discipline of study, yet will additionally require study of topics related to all disciplines and required in nearly every engineering field:
Build courses based on available learning materials on Wikiversity
Add courses based on the classes that you are currently teaching/taking. Add a page on the contents of each day of class at the end of the day. You will learn the material better and help us all learn.
