Abstract

The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) has suggested different ways to instill in students a more complete appreciation for 'Professional Component' of Engineering. According to the ABET criteria, students should understand how engineering relates to activities in economics, environment, sustainability, manufacturability, society and politics. Engineering Professionalism is a design oriented class, required as a pre-requisite for capstone design courses in all engineering programs at University of Minnesota (UMD). The course prepares students to use knowledge from their respective disciplines for the good of humanity with both technical competence and professionalism.
