Summary

The course summarizes the fundamental knowledge of social sciences and humanities in relation to engineering practice. Engineering practice is integrated into a broader social context. The production-technical, economic and political subsystem of society is analysed. Particular attention is paid to the definition of technology as part of the material culture of society. Technical progress and its consequences are reflected. Emphasis is placed on the justification of the moral order of society and the ethical issues of science and technology.
