CSTV was established in 1984 as an interdisciplinary teaching and research unit. Since 1991, it has been connected with the Department of Systems Design Engineering.
CSTV is one of the University of Waterloo’s interdisciplinary programs and is a member of the Science and Technology in Society Teaching Group.
