AbstractVarious attempts are described in an effort to integrate ethics into the freshman year engineering classes. The attempts include formal lectures on moral reasoning theories, ethics focused videos/DVDs, environmentally focused design projects, design projects that force students to consider societal and global issues. A somewhat different type of design project, compassion practicum, is also described. The compassion practicum requires students to use an engineering design methodology to identify, design a solution an implement that solution with the charge to the student stated as 'do something compassionate for some being other than you'
