In summer semester 2021, Transferwissenschaft offers the popular undergraduate seminar Engineering for Impact for the third time. Students focus on questions such as how science can benefit society, and how technology can be developed responsibly and sustainably. The course is aimed at everyone who wants to acquire practical skills in the field of responsible innovation and impact of research.
The seminar offers an introduction to methods and models of knowledge and technology transfer. Theory-focused lectures are accompanied by practical exercises. In additional lectures and online workshops with external practice partners, students get the opportunity to develop their own practical transfer skills. Students also gain insights into science communication. At the end of the course, students will be able to identify the economic and social benefits of knowledge transfer, reflect on current societal issues, and apply their new skills in practice.
