Humanizing Technology

The development and piloting of a new humanities certificate for engineering students.

With the NEH Initiatives for HSIs grant, we will create a new Certificate in the Humanities to provide rigorous humanistic training for our Engineering students. Our goal is to develop students' capacities as deliberative, critical thinkers about social and cultural systems and to train students who can attest to the relevance of humanistic thinking not simply for their occupational life, but for navigating their values and place in the world. The certificate will achieve three goals: ensure that our many Engineering students use humanistic methods to explore and understand the social, cultural, and historical ramifications of new technologies; make purposeful general education requirements that students now complete haphazardly; and, by introducing Engineering students to humanities disciplines earlier, give them options should they change majors, without prolonging their time to degree.
