Science, Technology & Society. The Science, Technology & Society Program of the Department of Engineering & Society is dedicated to preparing engineers who can perform analysis, problem-solving and design, as well as exercise judgment.

Technology and human life cannot be separated; society has a cyclical co-dependence on technology. We use technology; depend on technology in our daily life and our needs and demands for technology keep on use technology to travel, to communicate, to learn, to do business and to live in comfort.

However, technology has also caused us concerns. Engineering and technological advancements are usually not born from a vacuum, but instead originate from a specific need in society. These needs can be quite broad in scope and can range from military applications to leisure.

Engineering, science, and technology connect to—and influence—each other. Engineering, science, and technology also influence (and are influenced by) society.

Our human values, needs, or problems often determine what questions scientists investigate and what problems engineers tackle.
