Registration open for Engineering and Peace

Thursday, May 25, 2017

In the Fall of 2017, CPA Director Paul Heidebrecht will once again be teaching a special topics course in Peace and Conflict Studies on Engineering and Peace. Meeting weekly on Wednesday evenings, this course is built on the conviction that the kinds of problems engineers seek to address, and the ways they seek to address them, should matter for anyone interested in advancing peace in the world.

As past students have noted:

"This course put my work as an engineer in context! I think that by taking this course, I grew both as an engineer and as a person."

"This course provides a unique place for engineers and non-engineers to meet and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the engineering mindset."

"This course exposed me to questions I have never thought about before."
