2259: Engineering Ethics

An examination of ethical issues in engineering using professional engineering codes as a starting point. The course will have a problem solving orientation, focusing on the analysis of particular cases. Actual high-profile cases such as the Challenger disaster will be considered, as well as hypothetical cases illustrating the more commonly encountered moral problems in engineering (such as accepting gifts from venders). Topics include the engineer/manager relationship, engineers and the environment, honesty in engineering, and risk, safety, and liability.
