Engineering Ethics Explorer

These activities and resources are HOW educators can integrate engineering ethics into their teaching. Ethics is easy to include as there are ethical issues relating to virtually all aspects of engineering. This means that individual sessions on ethics can be easily integrated into an existing curriculum. Case studies which show how ethical issues arise in practical engineering settings are particularly well suited to one-off ethics sessions as well as demonstrating how ethics operates in everyday life. It is often a good idea to introduce ethics as part of the design process or through project-based learning. Design and projects provide a context in which ethical issues typically arise naturally.
