GENERAL EGR COURSES OPEN TO STUDENTS FROM ACROSS THE UNIVERSITY

The Keller Center offers several courses that have interdisciplinary content integrating engineering, natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, and are of broad interest to students from across the University. These courses typically have no prerequisites and bear the label "EGR". The following courses are in this category:

TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIETY

EGR 277 was first offered through the Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education and cross-listed with the History and Sociology departments in Spring 2010. This course was developed in collaboration with the Departments of History and Sociology with support from the 250th Anniversary Fund for Innovation in Undergraduate Education. The faculty involved in the course development are: Michael Gordin and Angela Creager (History), Betsy Armstrong (Sociology and WWS) and Sharad Malik (Electrical Engineering). EGR 277 is the foundational course for the undergraduate certificate Program in Information Technology and Society.

EGR 277/HIS 277/SOC 277: Technology and Society

ENGINEERING PROJECTS IN COMMUNITY SERVICE (EPICS)

In EPICS, students earn academic credit for their participation in multidisciplinary design teams that solve technology-based problems for local not-for-profit organizations. Students from all classes and all majors are urged to join and work on projects for multiple semesters. EGR 250/251/350/351/450/451: Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS)

ENTREPRENEURSHIP COURSES

Any student should be able to explore entrepreneurship by taking any one of the offered classes. In other words, all classes are stand-alone, without prerequisites.
