Abstract

The use of the World Wide Web (WWW) in engineering education, with particular relevance to courses on engineering ethics and/or the social implications of engineering is discussed. Course materials and resources used by the students are presented. In addition for providing information on engineering ethics, the WWW lends itself to use as a place to post a `living' course syllabus with hypertext links to on- and off-site reading materials. With the use of Internet itself can serve as a case studies in engineering ethics and the social implications technology.
