CCT students have diverse academic backgrounds but all have in common a desire to contribute to our understanding of technology’s on-going impact on society. CCTers embrace thought and techniques from multiple disciplines and their intellectual exploration may take a variety of forms. Within this supportive environment, CCTers work on super-charging their critical thinking and problem-solving skills to make them nimble and empowered for careers of the future.
Over the last 20 years, we’ve been preparing people for whatever comes next. It’s a way of thinking, a way of developing questions, it’s a way of learning how to learn, learning how to pose your own questions. The difference between CCT and other fields is that we’re studying a problem that’s evolving in real time. We can bring that approach to almost any problem or question that might come up.
