Did you know that engineers have almost as long an ethical code as doctors and attorneys? And all professional engineers must revisit ethics every year, before renewing their PE licenses. This seminar will address the common ethics pitfalls that face our graduate students, both in school and after graduation. We’ll discuss data collection & description, data & results fabrication, paraphrasing vs. plagiarism, author responsibility, PE licensing, & ethics in teaching. We’ll talk about how this applies to your current role, as students, and how it carries over into professional careers. We’ll also address your questions, thoughts, & ideas.


Friday, April 14, 4 – 5 pm in ECJ 6.406
