This course will enable students to gain a deeper understanding of the ethical issues and dilemmas that arise in professional engineering conduct and their responsibility to society. Students will examine the societal grand challenges of water, food, and energy (electricity and heat) to thread together the themes of environment, sustainability and ethics. Students will explore potential solutions and will be challenged to consider the difficulties of balancing the beneficial effects of the solution with the negative effects on people and/or the environment. The Professor will share his extensive experience in research and development of a US patent technology (US9040007B2), leading to commercial air purifiers, and his stateof-the-art technology in energy storage, leading to some China patents and start-up awards.
