Abstract

This paper describes a multidisciplinary course entitled `Technological Catastrophes' that is offered as a General Education elective in Science, Technology and Society (STS) at North Carolina State University. All students entering the university since Fall 1994, including engineering students, are required to take at least one STS course. The purpose of the STS requirement is threefold: 1) develop an understanding of the influence of science and technology on civilization; 2) develop the ability to respond critically to technological issues in civic affairs; and 3) contribute to an understanding of the interactions among science, technology and human values.
