|PHIL2207||"Online Only" Ethics For Engineers||O 3C [W]|
The course is directed at individuals who are currently qualified engineers, or to those who have permission of the instructor. It provides a problem-centred approach to engineering ethics, as well as the conceptual and theoretical tools basic to developing the skills for recognizing and addressing ethical issues in the engineering field. Topics include: engineering as a profession, design safety and risk, accidents, confidentiality, conflicts of interest, intellectual property, professional conscience, whistle-blowing, engineering and the environment, computer ethics, and the ethics of engineering research. These concerns are developed in part through analysis of wide ranging, real-life scenarios. PHIL 2207 cannot be used for any credit in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of New Brunswick.
