This is a preliminary version of a course in Engineering Ethics that pulls together Connexions modules that were used as part of an Engineering Ethics course taught by William Frey in fall 2006. An Engineering Ethics Bowl competition formed the capstone experience of this course. Frey, Cruz, and Sanchez have reported in detail on the Engineering Ethics Bowl in "The Ethics Bowl in Engineering Ethics at the University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez," in Teaching Ethics, Volume 4, number 2, Spring 2004: 15-31. The major change in this activity reported in this course is the use of peer review teams to score the competition. This course in Engineering Ethics is being developed as a part of an NSF-funded project, "Collaborative Development of Ethics Across the Curriculum Resources and Sharing of Best Practices," SES 0551779.
