2012 ENGRG 1050

In the Fall of 2012, the Bovay Program gave guest lectures in the following ENGRG 1050 classes. ENGRG 1050 is a class designed to introduce first year students to the Engineering college and to Engineering. For each class, an overview of issues in Engineering Ethics was presented and then a particular case, based on the 1050 Instructor’s field of expertise was discussed. Cases included the Harvard undergraduate cheating case, the synthetic construction of living micro-organisms, the Schon faud case in the journal Science, prosecution of file-sharing laws, technology and terrorism, issues with regard to global climate change, conflict of interest, and genetically modified food.
