Introduction: Engineering philosophy, engineering ethics and professionalism, ethical terminology. Ethical Issues in Engineering: Understanding ethical problems, qualities of engineers, moral codes. Responsibilities of Engineers: Commitment to society, sustainable development, technology and society, risk, safety, and liability. Institutional Ethics: Code of ethics, key concepts, importance, limitations. Rights of Engineers: Workplace rights, whistle blowing. Professionalism for International Engineers: Challenges of globalization.
Course rationale
Engineers have a core responsibility to serve the society and work for the betterment of the world. Throughout their careers, they are faced with ethical issues many a times, and the decisions they take may adversely affect the world, or a part of the world. It is often difficult to understand the morally right course of action, and ethical decision making requires more than having an enlightened sense of right and wrong. Engineers must be sensitive to ethical issues for the continuing professional development in their careers. It is, therefore, essential that modern day engineers have a clear understanding of how engineers should interact with the society, and the impacts of engineering decisions on the society and environment. This course aims to (i) sensitize students to ethical issues in engineering, (ii) develop an appreciation of the ethical responsibilities of engineers, and (iii) equip students with the necessary skills required for ethical decision making.
Course objectives
