Designing Ethics

Some of the most significant engineering challenges the next generation of engineers will face also contain thorny ethical questions. Access to clean drinking water, providing adequate medical care, and the development of new communications technology are just a few examples in which designing the right thing must also doing the right thing. The Designing Ethics Bass Connections team will explore ways to develop engineers who are ready to do both.

Designing Ethics will develop a framework for more fully integrating ethics into the engineering curriculum from the outset of EGR 101. Students will explore and fill gaps in engineering education, conduct research on ethics education in engineering, participate in the process of generating new curricular materials, and support the instruction of their peers.
