El Sustainable System Design at Aalborg University, Denmark
In this paper, we discuss to what extent STS knowledge is needed and contributes to complex problem solving in design engineering. We discuss this based on experiences with the program of Sustainable Design Engineering at Aalborg University in Denmark. We claim that STS contributes in three meaningful ways: by supporting a critical view on existing knowledge; by providing tools to take into account controversies and delegation of agency; and by reasserting design as a social process.
