The Delft approach to teaching ethics and philosophy of technology to engineering students
As developed by the Ethics and Philosophy of Technology Section of TU Delft
This site showcases an approach for teaching ethics and philosophy of technology to engineering students developed by the Ethics and Philosophy of Technology Section (EPT) at TU Delft. The Section consists of experts in ethics and philosophy of technology who believe in research-based and problem-based teaching. Our teaching approach stems from the research projects being conducted in our section and from our educational experience with engineering students from all the faculties of TU Delft.
