Washington D.C.: National Academies.   “A lot of engineering problems involve complex or unclear social, political and economic issues. Providing students an opportunity to explore that is important.” One big draw for students in the class is the opportunity to work with community partners on actual engineering projects. Engineering for Sustainable Communities: Principles and Practices is a comprehensive resource for sustainable engineering methods throughout the life cycle of infrastructure projects and systems. As stewards of the nation’s infrastructure, civil engineers are called to lead and advocate for sustainable design, programs, and development. In addition, this book: Provides a transformative framework for engineering educators in service learning, professional communication, humanitarian engineering, community service, social entrepreneurship, and social responsibility Includes strategies that engineers on the job can use to advocate for social justice issues and explain their.

Hello Ankita, Thank you for sharing a reading list on engineering and social justice with readers of the Engineering for Change website. One useful addition would be a category on Engineering Education, which has increasingly engaged the role of social justice in engineering education, via books such as these: Riley, Donna (). This book, Engineering and Sustainable Community Development, presents an overview of engineering as it relates to humanitarian engineering, service learning engineering, or engineering for community development, often called sustainable community development (SCD).Cited by: Engineering and Social Justice, which identified social justice as the missing dimension of sustainable community development through the book Engineering Education for Social Justice by Lucena and the book Engineering Justice: Transforming Engineering Education and Practice by Leydens and Lucena. Whether you aspire to be an activist, planner, or advocate, the sustainable community development (SCD) program presents you with the toolbox to create effective community change. Our SCD major is one of the first of its kind in the nation. Through an interdisciplinary approach we examine the three pillars of sustainability—environmental, social, and economic—in a Read More →.
