New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

ENGS 15.05 Blockchain Explored: Promise, Pitfalls and Plumbing

This course will explore blockchains – how they work, how they have been used, and how they are affecting society in finance, information sharing, and law.  Blockchain technology and its applications have been hyped and condemned with equal fervor.  We will examine the phenomenon from a number of perspectives, and aim to provide all participants, no matter what their background or level of technical skill, with both some hands-on experience in working with blockchain-based software and some understanding of the place of applications such as cryptocurrencies, NFTs and DAOs in contemporary America.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
