Competition Description
“Colleges and universities, each represented by a two-student undergraduate team and accompanying faculty advisor, present their solutions to a fictional case involving ethical, business and engineering issues. In addition to the hands-on opportunities for students to learn about the company and its technologies, the annual event compels students to think about the importance of ethics in the workplace. The competition focuses on real-life dilemmas that can arise in the workplace, especially in the multifaceted and fast-paced world of technology.” (Lockheed)“Colleges and universities, each represented by a two-student undergraduate team and accompanying faculty advisor, present their solutions to a fictional case involving ethical, business and engineering issues.
