Ethical engineering practice is a global issue. However, cultural norms and social realities may result in differences in points-of-view on ethical practice. The present project seeks to facilitate discussion and analysis of ethical practices between undergraduate engineering students at our university and peers in partnering countries. Three major goals of the project are to develop a readily accessible website for student interactions, to develop partnerships with global participants, and to develop machine-based tools capable of identifying major topics in student contributions to the website and analyzing characteristics of students’ ethical reasoning. An undergraduate ethics course for engineering majors and the website http://reflectivechoices.ttu.edu are currently the primary channels through which this project is being developed and implemented. The results describe steps in developing the website, which is currently operational, progress developing partnerships and in recruiting participants, and an analysis and discussion of students’ submissions to the website from the first several months of operation.
