This website presents ethics learning materials developed as part of a three-year research project sponsored by the National Science Foundation. The project has to do with helping graduate students of all backgrounds and in all engineering disciplines learn about the basic ethical principles, rules, and obligations associated with engineering practice in the United States.
The educational materials on this website apply to both domestic and international engineering graduate students. However, the materials have been specially designed to be sensitive to the needs of the international graduate student. Forty percent of international engineering students remain in the United States and are employed in some facet of engineering research and practice. These international graduate students face acculturation challenges that domestic students do not encounter, making them a natural audience for focused instruction.
The public pages of this website (where you are now) tell about the research project, about the research team, and about the instructional modules we have designed for this course. For those who wish to know more, we also include research publications from this project, and information about how to contact us.
