Innovating for the Public Interest and Defense

As powerful new technologies advance and become more ubiquitous, it is critical that these systems operate for the benefit of humankind. Consequently, it is incumbent on higher education to develop a public interest perspective that creates a robust pipeline of well-trained and educated students interested in pursuing careers in the field of public interest technology and public service. This course is a partnership between UVA Law, Engineering, and Policy to create and assess a graduate-level course that provides students an experiential learning experience that instills a deep understanding and appreciation of the complex ethical, legal, policy and societal implications of new technologies.

We offer two focus areas:

  1. Innovating for the Public Interest
  2. Innovating for Defense
