The engineer is the professional within an organization who innovates and very often designs products and innovative processes. And yet, the success of any innovation requires that considerations beyond the purely technical sphere be taken into account.
The aim of this UV is to carry out this task by offering student-engineers the tools to understand, analyze and manage the economic, social and legal factors that play a role in the emergence and adoption of information and communications technology (ICT). The particular features of this technology (ICT) will be explained via theoretical courses as well as case studies, conferences and role-playing.
