PHIL 20700 - Ethics For Technology, Engineering, And Design
Credit Hours: 3.00. The practices of technology, engineering, and design are full or moral as well as technical challenges.

The course culminates in a reflection of the student's own technology, engineering, or design project experience, and so is restricted to those students who have already had or are concurrently engaged in such a project.
