Course 10-ENG: Bachelor of Science in Engineering with Concentration

Society, Engineering, and Ethics (SEE) Concentration

The SEE Concentration provides students an understanding of the place of engineering in society and the influence of society on engineering, both within an engineering context.  Furthermore, the SEE Concentration provides students an understanding of ethical issues in engineering, including the ethical foundations of engineering.  There is a focus on fundamentals:  What are the prospects for engineering, what is its scope, and what are its limits?  A major aspect of addressing these questions involves learning innovation and entrepreneurship in their ultimate senses and developing a vision for accomplishment and success. The classes listed below are suggested subjects, but students may propose any set of courses that fit the SEE concentration, including special subjects and independent study, pending approval from their 10-ENG advisor.

Suggested Undergraduate Subjects
Students can choose 4 or more of the following subjects such that the total number of units meet the 39-48 unit requirement.  In addition, students can propose other subjects, including special subjects and independent study, if they are consistent with this concentration per consultation with his or her advisor.
