The Program in Technology and Society
, which starts enrolling students this semester after the reorganization and expansion of a successful previous program, offers students two tracks that address key intersections between technology and society: information technology
. Both tracks, which share a core course and requirement structure, are designed to bridge the humanities, social sciences and engineering, and are open to students across the University regardless of technical expertise.
"The most critical problems today involve scientific and technological solutions, but not in isolation," said Sanjeev Kulkarni, director of Princeton's Keller Center, which administers the program in conjunction with its partners, the Center for Information Technology and Policy
and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment
. As society addresses problems of energy, sustainability, health, security and privacy, "whatever solutions we arrive at have to include the human and cultural factors, the economic and political implications," Kulkarni said. "So we need students familiar with all sides." Read the full story here.
