IDS 210 Intercultural Engineering

Effective date: September 2018

This complementary studies course examines the role of culture and language in technology and engineering projects, including international development projects. Engineering case studies will be used to analyze the ways in which non-technical considerations may affect project success or failure. Dynamics of diverse and multicultural engineering teams, the use of engineering standards, intercultural communication, appropriate technologies, social entrepreneurship and humanitarian engineering will be examined.

Note: This course may be of particular interest to a student intending to enter UVic Engineering via the Engineering Bridge or Engineering Transfer programs. Case studies are general in nature; specific knowledge of engineering is not required for the course. Any post-secondary English or technical writing course provides adequate preparation for IDS 210.
