AbstractEthics for Engineers is a new one credit course that will provide ethics training to graduate students through an orientation to the topics in engineering ethics in order to prepare students to become familiar with discussions and methods for developing ethical approaches to engineering research and applied projects. Contemporary issues in engineering ethics will be presented through mostly on-line training resources but also several in-class discussions to hear lectures from several experts’ experiences with ethical challenges in engineering. These issues include research integrity, professional ethics, human subjects protections, animal protections , intellectual property rights/ software patent issues and engineering ethics and sustainability.
