COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
XE492 DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONS 2013 1 Electrical Engineering and Computer Science 3.0 (BS=0.5, ET=2.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
The course begins by developing the background understanding of what disruptive technology is and a historical context about successes and failures of social, cultural, and religious acceptance of technological innovation. To develop this framework, students read several texts underlying the innovator's dilemma, how scientific revolutions are structured, and cultural distinctions found between the sciences and humanities. For each class meeting, students read current scientific and technical literature and come prepared to discuss current events related to technological innovation. Each student researches potential disruptive technologies and prepares a compelling argument of why the specific technologies are disruptive so they can defend their choice and rationale. Cadets also interact with national level innovators throughout academia, industry, and government.
