Curriculum

The core courses in Engineering and Society provide our students with a deeper understanding of how their future engineering practice will influence and impact their communities.  Within the context of historical analysis, public policy development and evolution of green engineering we investigate how technology affects society and how in turn society influences the development of technology.

The core courses in the Engineering and International Studies stream provide a deeper understanding of a range of aspects that influence the practice of engineering within a global context.

Additionally, both Society and International Studies students take three inquiry courses that develop skills and expertise in question-driven research.  Our students also self-design a set of focus electives from outside Engineering, to obtain skills and knowledge in an area of significant personal interest to each individual student.
