**EEE 491: Independent Study (3 credits)**

For students interested in any of the following ways of studying Electronics and Communication Engineering: independently exploring an advanced topic under a faculty instructor; conducting significant research under a faculty supervisor; or doing an internship in industry under the supervision of industry and faculty advisors. In each case, the student must first identify a faculty member within the department to oversee his/her work, and then write a proposal to the department chair outlining the means and objectives of the project. The proposal must be approved by the intended faculty supervisor and department chair prior to commencement of the term. At the end of the term, the student must submit a detailed report and/or give a presentation of the results, before the final course grade may be awarded.

Students learn a systematic approach to moral reasoning. It focuses on problems associated with moral conflicts, justice, the relationship between rightness and goodness, objective vs. subjective, moral judgment, moral truth and relativism. It also examines personal ethical perspectives as well as social cultural norms and values in relation to their use in our society. Topics include: truth telling and fairness, objectivity vs. subjectivity, privacy, confidentiality, bias, economic pressures and social responsibility, controversial and morally offensive content, exploitation, manipulation, special considerations (i.e. juveniles, courts) and professional and ethical work issues and decisions. On conclusion of the course, the students will be able to identify and discuss professional and ethical concerns, use moral reasoning skills to examine, analyze and resolve ethical dilemmas and distinguish differences and similarities among legal, ethical and moral perspectives.
