Event Details

Contextual Engineering at the University of Illinois is emerging as a critical discipline for globally-minded engineers, as is demonstrated by multi-disciplinary research efforts that extend beyond campus to universities on six continents. But how do we evolve traditional pedagogies to meaningfully bring together the social science and humanitarian disciplines within engineering education? Join your faculty colleagues from ABE, ACE, African Studies, Anthropology, BioE, CEE, ECE, Education, FAA, Geology, Global Studies, History, ICI, ISEE, Latin American Studies, NPRE, MechSE, NRES, Sociology, and many more academic units in exploring the potential for cross-campus collaborations to transform the technical process.
