Engineering and social sciences--it sounds like a bad mix for a dinner party. But S. Shankar Sastry, the dean of the college of engineering at the University of California at Berkeley, says it's the wave of the future.
Sastry, who became dean in January, is out to change the curriculum at the university, both to make engineering more attractive to students and to make engineering education more attuned to the demands of the working world.
Other changes are afoot, too. This year, UC Berkeley changed the course lineup for incoming freshman, he said. Nanotechnology and material science are now more emphasized than in the past. Biology also will be more tightly integrated into the traditional engineering curriculum.
