Bernie Roth: Life by Design

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:10 pm on 17 October 2016

Life lessons don't often come from the engineering department at prestigious universities like Stanford. But for more than 40 years mechanical engineer Professor Bernie Roth has been teaching a class about applying design concepts to life.  

He says the  same concepts  engineers use to design buildings or irrigation projects can be used to lose weight,   achieve work/life balance or just about any problem life throws at us.  

His class "The Designer in Society", is one of the most popular at Stanford University.
