Solving Engineering Problems : Think like Great Scientists

Create Disruptive Innovation using lessons from the greatest minds in History


This course is designed to explore the thinking patterns and mental models of some of the greatest scientists and innovators in history, including Isaac Newton, Richard Feynman, Isambard Brunel, Steve Jobs, and Elon Musk. Through a combination of lectures, case studies, and discussions, you will learn how these brilliant minds approached problem-solving, decision-making, and creativity, and how you can apply their methods and strategies to your own life and work.

You will delve into the scientific and engineering principles that guided these luminaries, and gain a deep understanding of their thinking patterns and mental models. From Newton’s rational approach to science, to Feynman’s ability to simplify complex concepts, Brunel’s visionary engineering, Jobs’s design thinking, and Musk’s futurist mindset, you will learn how these innovators tackled the most challenging problems of their times and produced ground-breaking discoveries and innovations.

Through case studies, you will analyse the strategies, techniques, and mental models employed by these luminaries, and examine the impact of their thinking patterns on their industries and the world. You will also participate in discussions and brainstorming sessions to explore how to apply these thinking patterns to real-world challenges, and reflect on your personal learning and development.

No prior knowledge or experience is required to enroll in this course, but a basic familiarity with science and engineering principles will be helpful. By the end of the course, you will have gained a deep appreciation of the thinking patterns and mental models of some of the world’s greatest scientists and innovators, and how to apply them to enhance your own problem-solving, decision-making, and creativity skills.
