Multi Disciplinary Courses (MDEP)
MDEP 221 Engineering and Social Justice: Critical Theories of Technological Practices W 3-0-0 3
This course is intended to help students understand critical theories and to develop critical perspectives towards technology in general and engineering practices in particular and draws from sociology, history, political economics, science and technology studies and philosophy. The course is cross-disciplinary in its approach and will explore the relationship between technology, labour, industry, society, and the natural world. Students will reflect on notions of rights, justice, freedom and sustainability in human and non human arenas. (0/0/36/0/0)

MDEP 400 Engineered Art
This interdisciplinary course promotes student awareness of the interplay of art and engineering within professional practice. It initiates integrated learning by broadening the experience of student engineers beyond the focus of traditional engineering disciplines; it promotes fine art initiatives to foster student awareness and appreciation for collaboration with specialists in other fields. Small teams of senior undergraduate engineering and fine art students will collaborate to produce artwork. Each team will involve at least one student contributor from each discipline. For each project the art concept will determine the engineering considerations, and the engineered components will be an integral factor in the realization of the art concept. (0/0/32/0/10)
~ COURSE DELETED IN 2007/08 ~
