Starting Spring 2022, you can further advance your Engineering Design Skills to create actual design solutions for culturally diverse, real-life stakeholders with a truly interdisciplinary team!
FSE 394: Engineering for Humanity
Together, as a team of engineers and anthropologists, you will investigate and evaluate the culture and needs of a group, and work together to help solve problems. Some exciting opportunities include:
- Hands-on application of engineering design.
- Real-life customers.
- An interdisciplinary experience.
- Learning through fieldwork.
- Interacting with culturally diverse groups.
- Understanding socio-cultural considerations in engineering design.
- The ability to give back to society.
The course is a single semester, upper-division class that will include numerous learning opportunities and activities, and two projects. Read the course syllabus.
This is a great experience to put on a resume, honor’s contracts will be offered (and this project could even be the start of your honor’s thesis) and it’s an upper-division tech elective credit for computer science, computer systems engineering, engineering management and industrial engineering majors.
For Spring 2022, FSE 394: Engineering for Humanity will be offered in-person, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1:30–2:45 p.m., in Engineering Center G (ECG) 141.
