The goal of this course is to help engineering students, who will upon graduation become engineering
professionals, to think broadly about their work as engineers.
The course employs historical, topical, and
case study approaches to examine a variety of issues concerning engineering ethics.
In the context of
this class, the term “ethics” is broadly construed to include social, economic, political, and environmental
considerations of particular issues.
The course combines lectures, film, and film clips with group analysis
and discussion of course readings and materials.
Students are expected to be active participants through
regular attendance, participation in class discussions, and completion of written assignments.
