Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

ABSTRACT:  This talk will describe the intellectual agenda of the graduate program (MS and PhD) in the School of HTS in the Ivan Allen College.  After describing the strengths of the faculty it will briefly introduce the perception of the relations between science, technlogy and society that drives the program.  The backgrounds and skills of the students who are enrolled in the program, the opportunities we provide for them, and the career paths that they have followed on completing their degrees will be summarized.  Throughout the stress will be on interdisciplinarity, technology-in-practice and intellectual rigor that together have led our students into careers that exploit the skills they have acquired in the program.
