Abstract

The curricular, pedagogical and methodological objectives that the Drexel program in engineering ethics aims are discussed. Designed initially to respond to practical needs of students and their employees in Drexel's co-operative education program, the objectives offer one possible implementation of the ABET 2000 criteria. An engineering ethics should be interwoven into an integrated engineering curriculum and relate closely to other analytical and hands-on activities of the engineering student, in the classroom and in the lab. The study of the ethics should supplement, clarify and modify the values acquired during professional socialization and draw on real-life experiences collected by the student in the school and the workplace.
