EAS 330LEC Ethics in Engineering and Computing


Engineers and computer scientists can impact thousands of lives and are often put in difficult situations, such as those involving internal pressures and constraints surrounding deadlines and budgets. This is why it's essential for them to develop a habit of considering the ethical implications of their choices, as even seemingly small, everyday decisions can have unintended consequences. This course will introduce students to engineering and computing ethics by teaching them to identify ethical issues in engineering and computer science practice and acquire ways to think about them. Students will become familiar with ethical theories, professional ethics, and the ethical codes of their particular field. Through analyzing and discussing case studies, they will develop skills in critical thinking, communication, and reflection. This course is the same as PHI 330.
