Abstract

Japan Accreditation Board of Engineering Education states that the aim of engineering ethics education is the understanding for engineer’ s social responsibility. However, the results of the surveys about engineering ethics showed that this aim was not achieved. This main factor was that most lessons of the engineering ethics were based on the top-down method. Therefore, it was hard for students to understand this intended aim. In this paper, we designed and performed the lesson based on the enlightened theory of group education. Students produced some products that the residents around the school may use. The student and the resident discussed about the safety use of this product together. When the questionnaire was executed after the lesson, it was confirmed that the student understood for the society’ s responsibility, and was shown that it was effective the proposal lesson recognizes the society’ s responsibility in engineering.
