One of the most challenging areas of moral reasoning is deciding where to draw the line between what is permissible and impermissible. The matter becomes more difficult and interesting if we accept that sometimes there is no distinct line between the two. Rather than presenting us with a clear choice of black or white, many situations arise where the only appropriate answer is a shade of gray. This course examines specific case studies that bring to light the ethical aspects of such situations, and it illustrates methods you can use in your ethical decision making process.

Making difficult ethical decisions is an everyday reality for professional engineers. For example, it has often been said that the first ethical dilemma a young engineer may face on the job is whether to accept gifts from a supplier courting his or her favor. So, just how does a professional engineer judge right from wrong when it comes to accepting gifts and amenities from suppliers or others? This course will challenge you to find appropriate ethical responses to questions like this one and other real-world dilemmas faced by engineers.
