Technology in Developing Countries.
Botting, David C.
Described is a class related to the spread of technology to the developing countries of the world. The class included students from many disciplines. The approach consisted of examining four aspects oF technological transfer and impact: the colonial background, agents of change, process of change, and case studies. The author believes these kinds of studies are particularly relevant to the liberal education of engineering students. Central to all such courses is analysis of the engineer's role in the process of social change and development and examination of ways in which engineering impacts on the social values and institutions of society. The diversity, political factors, economic factors, and psycho-social factors of the developing countries are studied. A course outline is included. (LS)
