Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences Candidate Talk: Toward an Integrative Approach to Engineering Education: Connecting Culture, Ethics and Education by Dr. Qin Zhu

October 4, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In this presentation, Dr. Zhu will talk about his scholarly journey toward an integrative approach to engineering education by connecting the cultural, ethical and educational perspectives of engineering studies. Dr. Zhu will discuss his research agenda in three interrelated fields which are all inspired by such integrative approach to engineering education: the cultural foundations of engineering ethics, global engineering education, and the ethics of technology and engineering. In addition, Dr. Zhu will share how his teaching passion and personal commitment to the cultivation of an ethical and culturally inclusive environment for the engineering profession further extend the integrative approach to engineering education.
