Online Ethics Center for Engineering and science
Featured Videos
  • The first of two brief videos based on interviews with leaders in climate adaptation, city management, engineering systems, public engagement, and other key fields, who gathered at the national meeting on “Climate Change and America’s Infrastructure: Engineering, Social, and Policy Challenges,” January 28-30, 2013.
  • This video highlights participant views about the wide range of expertise and public involvement that will be needed to respond adequately to the stresses on engineering systems from climate change. It is designed to enable educators and others to engage with engineers and the public about the numerous challenges, and to stimulate discussion about how to respond.
What is the OEC?

The Online Ethics Center (OEC) is a repository of resources on the ethics of science, engineering, and research that help engineers, scientists, scholars, educators, students, and interested citizens understand and address ethically significant topics and problems that arise in the practice and results of science and engineering.

A five-year improvement effort to update and expand site, with new features and content, began in 2014 with an award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). More information about the OEC can be found in the About section.

Submit Materials

The OEC seeks submissions of high-quality ethics education resources in science and engineering for inclusion in its collection. Interdisciplinary materials are particularly welcome, as are resources that promote active learning at the undergraduate or graduate level. Materials are also needed to assist faculty new to teaching in science and engineering ethics. For more information on resource submissions, see the Submit Materials page.
