Mitcham to deliver Faculty Senate Distinguished Lecture January 25

Professor Carl Mitcham
The 2017 Colorado School of Mines Faculty Senate Distinguished Lecturer, Liberal Arts and International Studies Professor Carl Mitcham, will present “Engineering Ethics: Thinking Small and Big” at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, January 25, in the Student Center Ballrooms.
 
Mitcham’s talk will focus on the history of engineering ethics, and how an increasingly changing, engineered world affects the work of engineers in modern society, also discussing what this means for “everyone who directly or indirectly contributes to and is influenced by the engineering way of being in the world”.
 
In addition to his appointment at Mines, Mitcham also holds an appointment as an International Distinguished Professor of Philosophy of Technology at Renmin University of China. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in philosophy from the University of Colorado, and his PhD in philosophy from Fordham University.
