Course Details

This course aims at presenting the academic writing skills, academic norms and engineering ethics. To begin with, we discuss how to do academic research from the macro perspective. Subsequently, we talk about the academic writing skills and the normative standards in academic writing. Finally, we extend to the engineering ethics that engineers should follow. The course exhibits rich academic writing skills and multiple forms of academic norms by demonstrating standard academic writing paradigms and inappropriate writing cases. Besides, the course draws on many vivid ethical cases to exploit the code of engineering ethics and the consequences of violating engineering ethics.
