EES perspective aging, technology, and ethics
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
In an ethical utopia, all people would have access to the diagnoses, processes, tools, and treatments that would ensure health and well-being throughout life, regardless of economic means, intellectual or physical abilities, religious beliefs, political stance, -sexual orientation, gender identity, or age. But such a reality does not (yet) exist.
Engineers, how-ever, can do their part by being attentive to ethics in all phases of their work, from problem scoping and initial design efforts to proto-typing, manufacture, and downstream monitoring of socio-technological impacts and unintended consequences. That would make a significant contribution to such an ambition.
