The name of the sustainability-focused undergraduate minor, concentration or certificate (1st program):
Technology, Society, Environment Studies

A brief description of the undergraduate minor, concentration or certificate (1st program):

A high level of industrialization and consumption, coupled with population growth, has created problems that past societies did not have to worry about. These have become the crucial problems of our generation.

To maintain reasonable material standards and quality of the environment on our crowded planet, we will have to continue to rely on technology. For this we will continue to need specialists in all fields of endeavor. However, the development of technology will no longer be governed solely by technical feasibility and economic gain, but also by desirability in terms of human and environmental values.

The TSE courses reflect the need to modernize education by tailoring it to our future needs. Taking one or more TSE courses makes it possible for you to "acquire an additional dimension of understanding, additional vision, and the sense of responsibility for the survival and importance of the whole that distinguishes the manager from the subordinate, and the citizen from the subject"
