Info tab content
This course examines engineering as a profession and the responsibilities of that profession to society. Professional responsibilities of engineers are compared to those of lawyers, doctors, scientists and business leaders. Ethical theories are introduced as frameworks to guide ethical decisions on technology implementation. Simple quantitative decision making concepts, including risk-benefit analysis, are introduced as a method for engineers to make ethically optimal choices. A wide range of technologies are discussed and ethical issues facing engineers in maintaining existing technologies and implementing new technologies are examined.
