Public Policy Researchers Win Awards for Paper Revealing Need for Strengthened Ethics Education for Computing Students
A team of researchers composed of members from Georgia Tech’s School of Public Policy, College of Computing, and the Center for 21st Century Universities took home multiple awards from the American Society for Engineering Education’s (ASEE) 2022 Annual Conference and Exposition for their paper.
The research, titled “Social Responsibility Attitudes Among Undergraduate Computer Science Students: An Empirical Analysis,” won the best paper award for the ASEE Engineering Ethics Division, best paper for Professional Interest Council 1, and was also a finalist for best overall paper for the 2022 ASEE conference. The latter honor was only bestowed on the top five submissions out of approximately 2,000.

They conducted the research in collaboration with Ellen Zegura, professor and Stephen Fleming Chair in Telecommunications in the College of Computing, and Director of Research Jeonghyun “Jonna” Lee from the Center for 21st Century Universities.
