ENGI 3101

ENGI 8152 Engineering Professionalism II

examines the demands upon the 21st Century engineer. Topics include the roles and responsibilities of the professional engineer in society, the Engineering Code of Ethics, sustainable development, environmental stewardship, the place of technology in society and the nature of technological decisions. Students will reflect on their entire course of studies, in the context of current accreditation graduate attributes. This is a writing-intensive course with a critically-reflective component.

ENGI 8154 Critical Thinking about Technology, Science and Engineering

is an introduction to the study of “science, technology and society” (STS) in the context of engineering. We examine how society, politics, culture and values affect scientific research, technological innovation, and the practice of engineering. Topics may include transhumanism, geoengineering, artificial intelligence, and emerging technologies. Issues will be examined through various lenses such as technological progressivism, feminist theories, and actor network theory. This is a research and writing-intensive course, with an emphasis on critical reflection.

ENGI 8155 Ethics in a Technological World

examines ethical issues and dilemmas that arise primarily in engineering work, but also in relationship to broader technological systems. Through case study analyses and facilitated discussion, various decision-making processes will be explored to address moral and ethical issues spanning from common workplace dilemmas, to whistleblowing, to major engineering disasters. This is a research and writing-intensive course, with an emphasis on critical reflection.

ENGI 8156 Engineering from Indigenous Perspectives

explores the history of Indigenous Peoples in Newfoundland and Labrador, including the Innu, Inuit, and Mi’kmaq, and the past and current relationships with engineering practices in the province. Investigating engineering challenges that arise in Northern and remote communities within the province is a key focal point.

ENGI 8157 Climate Change and Infrastructure Design

explores the impacts of climate change and engineering design, through the examination of an in-depth case study of infrastructure failure and the subsequent reconstruction to address climate change impacts. Students will learn about the responsibilities of engineering professionals as they participate in community-based planning and propose their own solutions to an infrastructure design challenge. This course is offered partially online and includes an in-person community-based experience with service-learning components.
