Call for action.

Dear Everyone,

We invite you to apply for a certificate study programme at BTU called TeSS that started in 2022.
TeSS is the acronym for Technology, Science, and Society, and the programme is rooted in the academic field of Science and Technology Studies (STS).
The study programme prepares students for the deliberative processes in society about a responsible and sustainable use of science and technology in our knowledge societies. It fosters critical reflexive thinking and deepens the understanding of the historical, political and ethical dimensions of technical objects, infrastructures and fabrication. Students work in a highly international and interdisciplinary environment, they learn techniques for lifelong learning, and build a community of practice. These competencies are confirmed with a Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) and a “Technology in Society” certificate.
