ENGINEERING FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE:
A CRITICAL SEMINAR ON THE POLITICS AND POSSIBILITIES OF ENGINEERING
Join us this Winter quarter for an innovative new seminar! We’ll ask questions like:
- How can engineers work for social justice at the drawing board and in their daily lives?
- Who do we engineer for? Who defines the problems we solve? Whose work is considered engineering?
- Is technology political? Who wins when a dam is built and who loses when an engineer designs a robot?
- Why are women and people of color still so underrepresented in engineering classrooms?
The course is open to all levels and all majors, including non-engineers. There are no prerequisites other than a desire to learn about the subject and participate actively in class. Course assignments will include readings, reflections, and conceptual designs. In class activities will be largely discussion based, focusing on weekly readings and the experiences and visions of students.
