Attendance is required for all scheduled lecture times. Engineers are increasingly tasked with incorporating elements of ?sustainability? into engineering analysis and design. However, the development of a consensus framework for engineering sustainability is still in the early stages, with limited practical guidance available to practitioners. Furthermore, the integration of normative and technical considerations, a core concern of sustainable development, is relatively unfamiliar territory for most engineers. This course provides an introduction to moral reasoning, examines ethical principles commonly used to justify and motivate sustainable practices, and explores engineering responses to climate change, water scarcity, and the environmental/social impacts of energy production and consumption.
