Engineering 535 (Engr 535), Development Technology, is a course addressing many aspects of development and development technology at Cal Poly Humboldt being taught by Meg Harper, Arne Jacobson, and Lonny Grafman in 2014.

The course is composed of three main components: Reading and responses, a semester long cookstove project and report, and a semester long O&M project.

O&M Project[edit | edit source]

In 2014, the client for the O&M project is CCAT. Here is a start to a table that will eventually be a main CCAT page that helps people find the information they need on a project fast.
