Current engineering ethics pedagogies are limited because they primarily focus on teaching reasoning skills. To promote the professional development of engineers beyond ethical reasoning, engineering educators need fundamental knowledge about engineers’ moral formation. To investigate engineers’ moral formation, the first author has begun a dissertation project that has three parts. The first part is a mixed-methods study of the influence of organizational culture on the moral formation of practicing engineers. The second part is a similar mixed-methods study of engineering students. The third part is an educational intervention whose content will be informed by the results of the first two parts. This work-in-progress paper describes the dissertation project, with specific details about the quantitative phase of the first mixed-methods study.
