Alaska Pipeline (4 credit hours)
American engineers achieved phenomenal success by creating the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, a project that many thought was almost impossible for a variety of reasons. Not only was the climate against them, but they also had to deal with the environment, the ecology, mountain ranges, and precipitous canyons at every turn. This latest course in the series of America's Greatest Projects and Their Engineers once again describes the nearly overwhelming challenges that were encountered by the engineers as well as the construction teams.
 
This 4 hour course, however, offers more insight and considerably more drama due to the fact that the author had access to the daily journals of those who actually performed the project tasks. Nevertheless, this course discusses the engineering challenges of the 1970's and how they relate to the basic concepts of modern engineering.
