module 4: Data and information ethics
This course enables students to deal in a critical and responsible way with their design decisions in relation to broader political and ethical issues such as privacy, intellectual property, and accessibility. They are introduced to the central topics in computer ethics, in combination with interactive workshops dedicated to critical reasoning and argumentation, with a special emphasis on the particular ways in which informatics combines mathematics and engineering, and uses both experimental and empirical methods.
modules 11 & 12: Philosophy and ethics of science and design
This module enables students to reflect systematically and critically on the philosophical, ethical, and social issues raised by their graduation projects. The first part of the course is connected to a design project and focuses on issues related to the philosophy and ethics of design, providing tools for anticipating the impact of a design on users, environment and society. The second part of the course, connected to the graduation project, focuses on issues related to scientific integrity, and on the methodology and philosophy of research and design within the field of informatics. The exact topics addressed in the course will be aligned with the various graduation projects offered to the students
