Scientists and engineers increasingly need to have knowledge and skills suitable for working in international environments and tackling global issues. “Global” means understanding connections between nations and recognizing differences and similarities between different cultures. In this course the focus is on issues in Europe and America, based primarily on their relationship to the production and consumption of manufactured objects. Through group research students explore case studies to gain an appreciation of different cultures and the interrelated issues that affect them in contemporary society.
