Class Photos from Spring 2002

The Spring 2002 semester had an enrollment of 12 graduate students and one senior undergraduate student in the fields of
Engineering Science and Mechanics, Mathematics, Civil Engineering, and Aerospace Engineering.

An integral part of this graduate level course is that the students are expected to
prepare and give a lecture over a portion of the course material.
