Humanities and Engineering: A Good Match?

There’s an article out from the Chronicle of Higher Education on connecting engineering and humanities that may be of interest to our readers. Check it out here. 

A highlight:

“In the United States, we are uniquely positioned to bring these two cultures together because, unlike in Europe and South America, students here are expected to learn much more than their specialty. This makes interdisciplinary interactions involving the left brain — analytical, convergent, and quantitative skills associated with science and engineering — and right brain — artistic and humanistic abilities — easier to achieve. Doing so will result in much more talented and versatile engineers and humanists, but it will require vast changes at every level.”
