چکیده

 تاریخچه فعالیت‌های مهندسی شامل نمونه‌های زیادی از توسعه است که بخشی از آن منجر به تخریب محیط‌زیست شده است. از این رو اخلاق زیست‌محیطی در آموزش مهندسی جایگاه ویژه‌ای دارد. مقاله حاضر در زمینه اخلاق مهندسی است که به صورت اختصاصی بر امر آموزش اخلاق زیست‌محیطی تمرکز دارد. عدم‌وجود دوره آموزشی مرتبط با اخلاق زیست‌محیطی در حقیقت یک حلقه مفقوده در آموزش کارشناسان مهندسی است که نیاز به توجه ویژه جهت مرتفع کردن مشکلات آتی دارد. در همین راستا مسئولین باید به فکر ایجاد یک تغییر الگو در عرصه آموزش‌وپرورش در مهندسی باشند، زیرا این امر به تعامل میان مهندسین و محیط‌زیست مربوط می‌شود. در نتیجه آموزش اخلاق زیست‌محیطی باید به‌عنوان یک مهارت ضروری در کلیه برنامه‌های مهندسی در نظر گرفته شود. به این منظور، این مقاله یک برنامه درسی برای دوره اخلاق زیست‌محیطی را پیشنهاد می‌دهد.

چکیده [English]

The history of engineering activities includes many examples of development that has led to environmental degradation. Hence, environmental ethics has a special place in engineering education. The present paper is in the field of engineering ethics, which focuses specifically on the teaching of environmental ethics. Also, the lack of a training course related to environmental ethics is in fact a missing link in the training of engineering experts, which needs special attention to solve future problems. In this regard, officials should think about creating a paradigm shift in the field of education in engineering, because it is related to the interaction between engineers and the environment. Engineers, compared to other single professions, are responsible for majority of the artifacts of the current world which we live in. The impact of an engineer’s work on this constructed world has both benefits and risks, ranging from safety and health issues to environmental degradations. Consequently, education of environmental ethics should be considered as an essential skill for all engineering programs. For this purpose, this article proposes a syllabus for an environmental ethics course.
