The National Academy of Engineering’s Online Ethics Center produced a video of our workshop in August 2015, Urban Infrastructure Transformations in China, India, and the US. In this workshop session, PIRE faculty and students discussed the role of ethics in their research.
The Online Ethics Center (OEC) is a resource maintained by the Center for Engineering Ethics and Society (CEES) at the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). Its mission is to provide engineers, scientists, faculty, and students with resources for understanding and addressing ethically significant issues that arise in scientific and engineering.
The video highlights remarks from the workshop about the ethical challenges in addressing urbanization, and the power of interdisciplinary, cross-cultural education and fieldwork in responding to the challenges.
