AbstractThe proposed study is a combined education and research project aimed at improving ethics education for international graduate students in engineering.   Our major argument is that an educational intervention consisting of a series of online ethics learning modules will help international graduate students overcome the acculturation barriers to inculcating normative ethical obligations associated with engineering practice in the United States.  Our multidisciplinary team of researchers from Texas Tech University, Baylor University, and the University of Texas at Austin proposes to create and implement web‐delivered ethics instructional materials to heighten international student awareness and mastery of normative values and standards in the field of engineering
