Mini cases provide decision points that allow students to practice decision-making
William J. Frey, CBA, UPRMteaching Engineering Ethics skills
William J. Frey, CBA, UPRMAdvances in moral psychology
Design pilot at graduate level, then integrate into undergraduate education
William J. Frey, CBA, UPRMHigh Point: EAC pilot program
William J. Frey, CBA, UPRMa Successful Failure (good results, little recognition)
William J. Frey, CBA, UPRMUnexpected outcomes
UPRM engineering school created SEGI to collect “soft” skills found in 3, a-k
William J. Frey, CBA, UPRMNew strategy: Concentrate “soft” skills
Engineering ethics integrated with other “soft” disciplines
3c—Ethics (and other components) in Design
3d—Multidisciplinary Team Skills
3f—Professional ethical responsibility
3h—Global and Social Impacts
There are still two separate worlds: Engineering vs. Social/Humanistic
William J. Frey, CBA, UPRMDe-emphasis of EAC
William J. Frey, CBA, UPRMAn alarming trend
Is the CIAPR sensitive to the macro and micro ethical issues facing engineers?
Is it necessary to become “colegiado” to practice (good) engineering?
What should be done about the engineering brain drain in Puerto Rico?
Students lack basic decision making skills and seem unaware of macro ethical issues discussed by students 10 years ago
William J. Frey, CBA, UPRMDifferent Concerns 10 years ago
