Abstract

A systems approach to the computational design of materials as dynamic multilevel structures integrates process/structure/property/performance relationships based on mechanistic understanding. In analogy to the structure of materials, new insights into the structure of the human brain provide a mechanistic basis for the design of engineering education. The development of the highest-level emotional synthetic functions controlled by the limbic system is best achieved by an integrated techmanities curriculum fostering the full skillset for value creation.
