[class lecture] ethics and the new engineering

“Ethics and the New Engineering” is a talk to the Fall 2014 class of “Engineering Ethics and the Public” by Taft Broome, Jr., ScD, Professor of Civil Engineering at Howard University and Project Advisor to “Bridging the Gap Between Engineers and Society: Learning to Listen.”

In this presentation, Dr. Broome combines modern and ancient history, philosophy, science, engineering, and engineering ethics to pose questions about how engineers are conditioned to view the world and their role in it, whether morally-sound engineering practice necessitates a paradigm shift in the engineering worldview, and what it would take to bring about such a shift.
