As engineers, we make many technical decisions every day. At times, we are faced with important ethical decisions that can have a profound effect on ​our clients, our business, ourselves and the general public.

This course seeks to increase our ability to deal effectively with moral complexity in engineering, to strengthen our ability to reason clearly, to think carefully about moral questions, and to develop a cognitive skill set encompassing the following areas:

  • Moral awareness
  • Cogent moral reasoning
  • Moral coherence
  • Moral imagination
  • Moral communication
  • Moral reasonableness
  • Respect for other people
  • Tolerance of diversity
  • ·Moral hope
  • Integrity

At the successful completion of this course, the participant will be better prepared to lead an ethical engineering organization.  The participants will also receive 6 PDH credits for attending the class, and a microcredential (digital badge) is also available for participants who choose to take and who pass our instructor-graded exam.
