Teaching Ethics to Computer Science and Engineering Students

Wednesday 22nd September the Ethics4EU team will run a very special online event on Digital Ethics. Lecturers from Chalmers University of Technology, Politecnico di Milano, Technological University Dublin and Institut Mines-Télécom will share their experiences in teaching Digital Ethics to Computer Science and Engineering students.


If you’re working in Higher Education, either as a lecturer, professor, researcher, or PhD student, and have an interest in Digital Ethics, this event is for you! If you are thinking of introducing Digital Ethics lectures in your modules/courses, this event will give you insights on how to do it in a pragmatic, case study based way.

This event might also be of interest to students in Computer Science Faculties that feel Digital Ethics should be introduced in their courses or that wish to understand its importance.
