This volume considers the way(s) in which globalization complicates or alters discussions of engineering ethics and engineering ethics education. This introductory chapter lays out some of the key ethical questions that have emerged for engineers in their education, research, and practice due to the rise of a global economy and briefly summarizes each of the chapters in Parts I and II of this volume. The chapters in Part I provide an overview of particular dimensions of globalization and the criteria that an adequate engineering ethics framework must satisfy in a globalized world. The chapters in Part II consider pedagogical challenges and aims that arise in a globalized engineering ethics education curriculum.
