PHIL 251 - Ethical Issues in Science and Engineering

(3.00)
The primary focus of the course will be inquiry into the ethical responsibilities of scientists, engineers and information technologists in today's high-tech, information-oriented society. Students will be introduced to both historical and contemporary issues involving ethical and professional responsibility through an extensive discussion and analysis of case studies. The key feature of the course will involve learning how to conduct an ethical analysis and then learning how to apply this analysis to a case study. Teams will be formed early in the semester so each group can meet and discuss case studies before they are discussed in class and before written assignments are due. Each team also will be required to engage in an extended case study project that will culminate in a team presentation of the case study in a PowerPoint format. Note: Philosophy students may not count PHIL 251 and PHIL 252  towards the major. Credit will not be given for both PHIL 251 and ENES 251 .
