The aim of the course is that the students shall be confident in designing and conducting a smaller Science Technology and Society (STS)/ Large Technical Systems (LTS) study in their own field of research. Course participants will have the opportunity to reflect upon what insights different STS/LTS methods and theories can provide, by conducting a smaller study.
  • The course builds on FMI015F and mainly consists of designing, conducting and communicating a smaller STS/LTS study that is in line with the students own research interests. Students write a shorter course paper that is presented and discussed at a seminar. Students shall also discuss other students’ course papers. Opportunities for supervision and discussion with course teachers will be offered throughout the course.
