In this paper, I propose a new model for engineering and technological ethics which looks beyond the usual health and safety issues to the broader effects of engineering on society. Most current engineering curricula emphasize the “how” of engineering almost to the exclusion of the “why”. I propose a two-phase approach to a systematic yet flexible treatment of these larger issues, in which one or more humanities courses are coupled with an engineering course on the roles of technology in society
