Science and technology public policy strongly guides the future of science education and research. Given the challenges to future federal support, the aim of this four-day seminar is to introduce graduate scientists and engineers to the 'nuts and bolts' of science policy making. The course will expose students to the fundamental structure and dynamics of science policy and inform them of routes into a policy experience or career. This seminar is cosponsored by MIT's President's Office and the Dean of Graduate Students strongly support the integration and deepening of science policy awareness within the MIT community at all levels. To enroll, please email Scott Carlson (email@example.com) with a brief essay (~150 words) regarding your student status and what you hope to get out of the class.
