At the individual level, engineering is a profession; at the level of society as a whole, it has become a critical competence. Explore the development of engineering during the European Middle Ages—until relatively recently derisively labeled the Dark Ages—and discuss the equally interesting and fundamental question of why and how the technologists of the Middle Ages laid the groundwork for the Industrial Revolution.
