At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. Jawaharlal Nehru, on the eve of Indian independence, 15 August 1947 Catalog Description History, development, and use of technology in different cultures. Technology’s impact on society, global environment, the workplace, cultural values, gender roles, and newly industrialized countries of the world. (Prereq: Upper division standing, passage of WST and CORE GE). 3 units. Tech 198 is crosslisted with ME, AE, ENGR and CompE. This class meets the SJSU Studies Area V requirement Prerequisite : For students beginning continuous enrollment in Fall 2005 or later, completion of, or co- registration in, a 100W course is required for enrollment in all SJSU Studies courses. Courses used to satisfy Areas R, S, and V must be taken from three separate SJSU departments, or other distinct academic units {having own HEGIS Code}). Purpose of Course Technology and Civilization is an SJSU Studies course (formerly, advanced general education course) in Area V: Culture, Civilization & Global Understanding that is designed to introduce students to the realm of history and usage of technology in society from an international perspective and to increase their awareness of both the uncertainties as well as the promises of the utilization of technology as a creative human enterprise. While science and technology are often decried as pervasive agents of social change, this course focuses on the role individuals can play in the management and control of technological forces toward human achievement. Emphasis in this section of the course will be on technology in the country of India and the role of technology in shaping human history. The perspective is to regard technology both as affecting and being affected by culture. This focus should help you broaden your view of technology and its role and effect on society, in particular the interaction of technology and culture in the country of India.
