Keller Center - Educating Leaders for a Technology-Driven Society

Technology and Society Certificate Program Information Sessions

Technology and Society Certificate Program Information Sessions

Posted on Friday, October 11, 2013Thumbnail image for T&S logo.jpg

The Program in Technology and Society is targeted at students, both engineers/scientists and humanists/social-scientists, who are interested in exploring the intersection between technology and society in depth. Graduates earning this certificate will be effective contributors to the shaping, development, and deployment of technological solutions for the benefit of society. Society and technology co-evolve, so that one cannot be fully understood without knowing something about the other. 

To ensure depth, individual programs of study are offered along two technology tracks: Information Technology (in partnership with the Center for Information Technology Policy) and Energy (in partnership with the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment).

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 following requirements need to be satisfied to earn the program certificate: core course, two technology courses, two societal courses, one breadth course, one-semester independent research project, present project/thesis to the program students and faculty at an annual symposium.

The Keller Center will host a series of information sessions this fall for students interested in learning more about the program.
