The Center for Science, Technology and Society will host a symposium titled “The Futures of STS in Engineering and Polytechnic Universities” on Friday, April 17.  All are welcome. Registration is open and free, but space is limited. Register at

The event will feature several science, technology and society (STS) scholars who will discuss questions such as

  • What does the future of STS look like in engineering and polytechnic universities?
  • In STEM-focused environments, where STS scholars often operate independently and without a central department or program, how can researchers maximize their impact on the education of undergraduate and graduate students, as well as on the original research conducted by — and often financially supported by — colleagues in engineering departments?
  • How can science, technology and society researchers become indispensable to engineering and scientific research endeavors without being perceived as simply support personnel?
  • Assembling convergent research teams to tackle important social and scientific challenges is an acknowledged best practice, so how should STS researchers embrace convergent research endeavors in order to add value and lead inquiries into areas of new and developing knowledge?
