Training Program on Interfacing Social Sciences with Engineering and Technology Education
Dates: 1-3 December, 2008
Venue: IMI, New Delhi
International Management Institute (IMI), New Delhi will be organizing a Training Program on Interfacing Social Sciences with Engineering and Technology Education on 1-3 December, 2008, at IMI, New Delhi.
The need for providing better understanding of social sciences in engineering education and integrating social sciences seamlessly with engineering and technology education cannot be overemphasized. If this is to happen the agents of change will be teachers of engineering and technology and indeed social scientists who are fully sensitized to the issues of social sciences as they impinge on the preparation of engineers and can bring about needed curriculum changes, without, of course, compromising on the engineering content.
For developing awareness and sensitizing teachers of engineering and technology programs to a host of issues relating to technology and society so as to enable them to make curriculum changes and implement them, a Training Program is proposed to be organized for three days. The Program is being organized by the Centre for Management of Innovation and Technology of the International Management Institute. Financial assistance for organizing the Program is being extended by the Technology Management Programme Division, Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, Government of India.
We shall be grateful if you could nominate a senior functionary of your organization to participate in the Training Program. We shall appreciate the contribution of your representative in presenting the perspective on the subject from the point of view of your organization in various sessions. There is no fee payable for participation. However, due to financial constraints, we are unable to offer financial assistance and have to request you to meet his travel, stay and related costs.
