TEACHING OF ETHICS TO ENGINEERING STUDENTS THROUGH THE USE OF ROLE PLAYING Public

Downloadable Content

open in viewer

Many students upon graduation are unprepared to deal with ethical issues presented in their careers. This is despite engineering curricula requiring that students learn about ethics and that the teaching of ethics must be incorporated into a degree program in order to receive accreditation. The goal of this project was to create an engineering ethics module that, if performed in an engineering course, would allow students to see the direct connection between ethics and engineering and be more comfortable and able to identify and overcome ethical dilemmas that may arise in an engineering workplace. This was done with roleplay.
