EGRS 191 Engineering in a Global and Societal Context

This is a three-week summer course, taught in various parts of the world, where we examine the global and societal context of engineering including the impact of traditions, customs, policy, and culture on engineering projects. The course involves daily field trips and plant tours, journaling, and discussions with engineers working in the countries we visit. Each course offering is organized around a multi-disciplinary technical theme e.g. renewable energy, water resources, sustainable buildings.
