Design and information society

The course introduces the students to the question of how modern computing is affecting society, and how the development and use of computer programs intersect social, moral and ethical issues in contemporary society.

Upon successful completion of this course, the students will have reliably demonstrated the ability to: research, summarize how computing has changed society, account for and explain how intertwined computer programs in our daily lives have become, as well as reflect on how these programs are created.
