Introduces the nature of engineering knowledge and practice; the influential role of engineering in shaping the world; and the ways in which social institutions, practices, and values influence engineers’ work. A variety of readings explore these topics. Framed as an introduction to the profession, the course promotes students’ abilities in creative and critical thinking and their skills in communications used in engineering practice, including oral presentations, written proposals, technical descriptions, memoranda, and abstracts. Drawing on a range of sources, students also complete a substantial research project that integrates course topics. (Y)
