Engineering Visions (2016)

A+ / A-

IP SUMMER SCHOOL "ENGINEERING VISIONS"
24.08.2016 - 03.09.2016
International Faculty of Engineering

Students reflect on the challenges facing our world today and create engineering visions for life on Earth in the next decades. In group projects they will flesh out their engineering vision for a “better world”. In addition to working on an issue from a particular field (see below), the students will also develop:

  • Awareness
  • Sustainability
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Intercultural competencies
  • Multidisciplinary approach
  • Innovative way of thinking

The engineer of the future must be able to express his knowledge in a way that is accessible to the general population. Today, the population lacks a general understanding of a number of technological advances. Discussions tend to rapidly digress into passionate discourses. The job of an engineer will be more and more to pass on his knowledge to the general population in a way that they can understand. Thus, it is imperative for engineers to be exposed to courses in humanities, social studies, ethics, and philosophy. It is up to them to be able to explain the choices our society makes.
