Research in science and engineering has comprehensive, sometimes unapparent ethical implications. This course introduces a broad view of research ethics. Students and the instructor in this course will work together to explore the components of responsible conduct of research, to consider the mutual influences between research and society, and to reflect on the ethical and value choices that are embedded in research decisions and practices. Students who take this course will form a robust understanding of ethical responsibility in their professional work; they will also develop pedagogical skills that prepare them to mentor students and colleagues on research integrity in their own disciplines.
