Literature for Tech-Minded
The course introduces students to the fiction that would be good for engineers to read to reflect on their professional role in society and as individuals. The course prepares students to face challenges when they are to manage project groups and be leaders for organizations because such positions demand skills in social competence and empathy. Also, the course encourages students to sharpen their thinking and make it more complex to see patterns and connections in other fields. Finally, it opens students’ imagination to previously undiscovered aspects of the outside world, which stimulates creativity and develops a mind that is open to counterintuitive possibilities.
