The ENGRG 1050 initiative of the Bovay Program is designed to introduce first year engineering students to ethical issues in engineering. In collaboration with the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education in the Engineering College, the Bovay Program visits individual sections of the first year professional advising course, ENGRG 1050, which all first year students are required to take. The Bovay program works with the faculty advisor for each section in order to design a lecture or seminar that covers broad issues as an introduction to engineering ethics, but also appeals to the particular disciplinary bent of each group. It is in this way that the Bovay program intitially contacts the majority of the first year students in the engineering college.
ENGRG 1050 Faculty advisors are encouraged at the start of each year through the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Education to contact Park Doing (pad9) or Ron Kline (rrk1) to initiate discussion about Bovay Program participation in their section.
