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.
