Exercise three: problem solving and the incident at morales

Go to the module on Incident at Morales. Enact the public hearning with your teacher and classmates. Concentrate on approaching responsibility in its proactive sense by going beyond blame, working collectively to prevent future disasters (learn from the past), and look for ways of turning this unfortunate incident into an opportunity to realize value and achieve excellence.

Exercise four: working with the code of ethics

Write a code of ethics for engineers in your particular branch. First, identify the key stakeholders to engineering practice. Then identify their vulnerable needs. Finally, base your code of activities that engineers can perform to consistently maintain and enhance these stakeholder needs and interests.

What did you learn?

This section provides closure to the module for students. It may consist of a formal conclusion that summarizes the module and outlines its learning objectives. It could provide questions to help students debrief and reflect on what they have learned. Assessment forms (e.g., the “Muddiest Point” Form) could be used to evaluate the quality of the learning experience. In short, this section specifies the strategy for bringing the module to a close.

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
