The focus of research in CES is interdisciplinary in nature. Applications will be considered for doctoral studies under the Individualized Program (INDI) of the School of Graduate Studies. Exceptional cases will be considered also for the research based Master's program under INDI.
Interested students are encouraged to send their detailed CV along with a short research proposal directly to the CES professor whose interests are most closely related to the student's proposed research.
Engineers and information scientists shape and are shaped by the social world in which they practice, and that world is becoming smaller and more interconnected. This observation opens a variety of research questions in the newly emerging field of global engineering. The major emphases of work in Global Engineering are in leadership studies and social entrepreneurship. These two foci guide should guide student research, which may be focused on one or more of the following areas:
The INDI Global Engineering currently invites students to explore questions bearing on the relationship between society and technology, and to prepare students to engage in ethical engineering practices in the service of a global community. The faculty affiliated with this current conduct research from interdisciplinary perspectives centered on methodologies in the Humanities and the Social Sciences. These methodologies are designed to enhance and harness the technical abilities of engineers for the promotion of global public goods.
