Hoping to help transform engineering into a more socially just field of practice, this book offers various perspectives and strategies while highlighting key concepts and themes that help readers understand the complex relationship between engineering education and social justice. This volume tackles topics and scopes ranging from the role of Buddhism in socially just engineering to the blinding effects of ideologies in engineering to case studies on the implications of engineered systems for social justice.
This book aims to serve as a framework for interventions or strategies to make social justice more visible in engineering education and enhance scholarship in the emerging field of Engineering and Social Justice (ESJ). This creates a ‘toolbox’ for engineering educators and students to make social justice a central theme in engineering education.

Key strategies to introduce social justice into engineering education
Case studies and examples of non-traditional places (e.g., NGOs, poor communities) for engineers to intervene in social justice and of traditional places (e.g., thermodynamics class, transportation systems) where engineers do not consider social justice as a significant dimension
Brings together perspectives of scholars from a wide range of universities, teaching and researching at the intersection of engineering and social justice ?
