In this chapter, we review and discuss academic programs in technology and public policy, focusing on those that are either located in an engineering college or have a strong engineering focus. We consider what constitutes technically focused research in programs melding engineering and policy, where and how this work is done, the focus of these programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and the challenges of building and sustaining such programs.
Many academic programs in the United States and elsewhere focus on the social studies aspects of science, technology, and public policy- Indeed, most programs listed in the original American Association for the Advancement of Science guide to graduate education in science, engineering, and public policy were in this category (Levey, 1995). Few programs combine deep technical education and understanding with modern social science and policy-analytical skills and knowledge.
