Objectives

GlobeWhat is good engineering? Is it simply the design and development of products and systems that predictably obey physical laws on demand? Or is it a holistic enterprise that anticipates and responds directly to social, political, and environmental impacts and needs? In particular, who benefits and who is marginalized as the consequence of engineering decisions? Who is included and who is excluded from the engineering design and decision making practices? How can the processes that drive engineering research, design, education, and practice be made more just, inclusive, and respectful of the environment? The ESJP Conference brings together a diverse community of engineers, social scientists, designers, artists, humanists, community builders, and others, working as scholars, students, practitioners, and activists, who work to envision and put into practice models of engineering design and pedagogy that inspire and promote community participation, ecological harmony, social justice, and peace.
