AbstractThis paper describes a two-part ethics/professionalism project used in a senior-level course taught at the University of Arkansas. Initially, students are asked to scrutinize ethical canons and standards of professional conduct published by the American Society of Civil Engineers and the National Society of Professional Engineers, and prepare an essay concerning the applicability of these standards. The second part of the project builds on the first: based on the opinion(s) generated in Part 1, students are asked to develop a set of canons or standards targeted specifically to the undergraduate student, and suggest processes for implementing those standards within the department.
