AbstractThe Engineering Criteria 2000 of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) promises to significantly alter the landscape of engineering education in the United States. One potential outcome of Criteria 2000 is increased attention in the curriculum to the ethical responsibilities of engineers. In this paper, I discuss the portions of Criteria 2000 with relevance to engineering ethics education, some encouraging and discouraging developments in the field of engineering ethics, and the work that remains in order to achieve meaningful ethics education for all engineering students, with particular emphasis on competing curriculum models.
