Few important engineering decisions are purely technical. In our globally interconnected world, professionals must be able to integrate social, cultural, political, economic, ethical and environmental knowledge into their decisions and designs.
Academic work in the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences provides you with an understanding of these contexts, enhances your abilities to communicate well, gives you the foundations to transcend traditional technical boundaries, establishes your competitive edge in the professional marketplace and prepares you to be a leader and a lifelong learner.
HASS faculty are recognized nationally and around the world as scholars and teachers who expect high levels of academic performance from their students. Their expertise includes:
Film and media studies
Science, technology and engineering
