Description: Engineers can encounter a variety of ethical issues and dilemmas in fulfilling their professional responsibilities. Ethical problems can be considered somewhat analogous to engineering design problems: both involve significant complexities, high degrees of uncertainty, a number of boundary conditions and constraints, conformance with criteria, identification and evaluation of alternatives responses, and deciding on the best solution or action. This course will prepare engineering students to understand the ethical issues related to their profession, analyze the various options and alternative course of actions, and implement the solutions to their ethical problems.
