THE J. E. ALDRED LECTURES ON

ENGINEERING PRACTICE

Through the generosity of Mr. J. E. Aldred there has been founded in the Department of Engineering of The Johns Hopkins University a course of lectures on Engineering Practice. The course of lectures is one feature of a general plan, made possible by Mr. Aldred's gift, for furthering and improving undergraduate instruction in the methods and problems of the practice of engineering.

The lectures deal, therefore, with the practical phases of engineering problems, rather than with underlying theory. They do not aim to discuss new and striking applications, as much as to deal with every-day working methods of design, construction, and operation.

Since the lectures are planned especially for undergraduate students, they presuppose an elementary rather than an extensive knowledge of underlying theory, and lay special stress on the tangible and obvious features and principles of present engineering methods.

During the year 1918-19 three lectures each have been given in the general subjects of Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering, as indicated in the accompanying list.

The lectures will be given in succeeding years in accordance with the same general plan. They are given in the late afterno 11 and are open to the public.
