Abstract

A four-year research project sponsored by Arup in partnership with University College London (UCL) has been building on the understandings emerging out of philosophical and social studies of science, technology and society. This project investigates the ways in which engineers are active in shaping the social aims and values towards which the socio-technical infrastructures of modern life progresses. There is a growing sense that engineers must take an active role in the delivery of advances towards sustainability, a knowledge economy and a changing landscape of engineering opportunities. This research has sought to better understand the roles undertaken by engineering consultants and the challenges in taking an active role in shaping a better world.
