The Department of Philosophy is proud to enounce the establishment of the Centre for Philosophy of Technology and Engineering Science (CEPTES). CEPTES is a new centre at the Faculty of Behavioural Sciences. Its First Biennial Symposium will be held at September 29, 2006.

CEPTES exists to promote scholarship and research in the philosophy of technology and engineering science, and to encourage scholarly exchanges between philosophy, engineering science, and social science. The center is dedicated to bridge the gulf between the humanities and engineering sciences, and to develop and disseminate a philosophical understanding of technology and engineering science and their impact on society.
