Abstract: Few would disagree that an undergraduate education should equip the engineer with more than technical competence. The subject of this paper includes discussion of a senior-level interdisciplinary course structured to help engineering majors understand historical and philosophical perspectives on science, technology, and engineering; the moral and ethical aspects of the technical professions; and the influence of science, technology, and engineering on future national challenges.
Subject Headings: Engineering education | Structural engineering | Engineering history | Ethics | Undergraduate study | Historic buildings
