Thousands of codes of engineering ethics, ethical principles, frameworks, AI ethics research modules, and AI ethics classes are proliferating globally. Software and systems engineering standards and certifications are now beginning to address ethical practices. Laws are being written worldwide in efforts to mitigate exponentially growing risks. With the use of artificial intelligence across industries, computer scientists and engineers are now constantly barraged with ideas on what they could and should do when designing, developing, deploying, and iterating on engineering new technology. Ethical practice in engineering is critical for ensuring public trust in the field especially as they tackle international and socially complex problems that combine technical and ethical challenges. This presentation aims to raise awareness of the variety of ways engineers are being taught to understand ethical and social issues in technology engineering. Using educational psychology, I critically evaluate how they are being taught in three of the best nationally and globally recognized universities. I highlight why these programs are important harbingers of engineering hearts and futures in order to provide an accessible understanding of how future engineers could contribute to building more ethical technology.
