DTS is a transdisciplinary department. Our research and teaching is focused on 4 Smarts: Smart Communities, Smart Development, Smart Education, and Smart Ethics. The faculty and students of the Department of Technology and Society (DTS) are comfortable with technical formulas and social science methodologies, yet are trained to reach FAR BEYOND engineering. We combine engineering with the humanities and liberal arts. We face the societal and environmental challenges of advanced and emerging countries. Our graduates become smart managers of technological systems. They have learned to apply the knowledge of an engineering discipline, computer science for example, not only in businesses and industries, but also to the betterment of human societies and the maintenance of a healthy planet.
Professor Gang He discusses the intersection of Global Engineering, human happiness, and Earth as humanity's home and still the only known livable planet. Read More
New Collaborative Papers Published
Dr. Gang He, and DTS visiting scholar, Dr. Hongtao Bai, have published: Mapping inter-industrial CO2 flows within China.
Existing research has been focusing on the inter-regional carbon flow, but industries are where carbon is mitigated. This paper fills the gap by looking into the inter-industrial carbon flow and shows that the construction sector has the largest carbon mitigation potential.
DTS post-doc Jean Jean Léon Boucher together with DTS faculty Drs. Kathleen Araújo and Elizabeth Hewitt published Do education and income drive energy audits? A socio-spatial analysis of New York State.
Two great papers. Check them out.
