Engineering ethics must keep pace with the acceleration in technology of the color sciences; as well as the incorporation of colors into engineering in order to improve safety standards, represent data, and signify dangers, such as hazardous materials. The significance of ethics cannot be overstated as technology outpaces our abilities to instill and enforce ethics and laws.
Please, we invite you to open the course’s first page that illustrates the course content pictorially.
“Engineering Ethics: Color and Technology” (EECT) provides a brief overview of important ethical principles and shows their applications with illustrated figures. EECT applies rational ethical principles to actual problems we now face in the US and must handle.
EECT tackles the problems concerning ethics within the various types of work environments in which we find ourselves, including warehouses, offices, environments with heavy and fast moving machinery, flames and hot metals and other materials.
We provide up-to-date facts concerning significant technologies related to: sensory substitution devices that allow the blind to “see” colors via video cameras encoding visual information as audio output information, color technology applied to medicines, color analyses of flames for gauging temperatures, and the importance of different types of colored representations of data for scientists and engineers.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
