The goal of this study is to identify and analyze engagement strategies. Ethics lessons from five instructors in first-year engineering projects courses will be observed and analyzed. The research questions are what are successful engagement strategies instructors and what ethical teaching outcomes does each produce?, how can these strategies begin to achieve Triggered-Feeling in their students? and how do these Engineering Ethics lessons affect students’ perspectives of an engineer’s role in ethical decision-making? These questions investigate the connections students can begin to form between their personal sense of social responsibility and engineering curriculums. By answering these questions, we seek a deeper understanding of how students can form meaningful connections with engineering and become more inclined to stay in the program. Data will be presented in the form of pre- and post-surveys from the students regarding the course and engineering overall and the students’ impressions of the Ethics lectures.
