Engineering and Society

About our program

Exploring the human side of engineering is the purpose of the Engineering & Society program, which examines the complex interactions between technology and society. Engineering & Society is offered for students in all departments at McMaster, under the direction of Dr. Brian Baetz, Professor of Civil Engineering.

Through core courses that deal with the culture, history and social control of technology, the program develops broadly educated, resourceful engineers with a multidisciplinary outlook and strengths in communication and effective interaction with others.
