Undergraduate courses

There is no undergraduate degree programme in science, technology and innovation. 

Instead, we offer very popular one-semester option courses that focus on various aspects of the historical and social dimensions of science and technology.

These courses are open to all students and are an excellent addition to almost any degree programme found across the University.
