AbstractThis article looks at the problems faced by faculty members looking to integrate ethics into the engineering curricula. The use of case studies is promising, but there is always the danger that the time spent discussing an ethics case study could be seen as an interesting side conversation, but somehow not an integral part of "real" engineering. The authors a case study, inspired by the National Society of Professional Engineer's popular video Gilbane Gold, that can be used to make the connection. It requires students to engage in technical analysis, but in a context that makes apparent the ethical responsibility of engineers.
