Environmental awareness and ethical moral reasoning are important
aspects of the engineering profession. Yet, engineering programmes
have been struggling to teach these topics and measure the
effectiveness of these educational interventions. In this study, we tested
the effectiveness of two independent measures of environmental
awareness and moral reasoning. We conducted pre-and post-test in two
groups (experimental and control). Our sample was 84 students in the
control group and 152 students in the experimental group. Data were
collected with a survey. Results suggest the instruments were effective
in measuring changes in scores, although they presented some
limitations. Based on our results, we discuss implications for education
practice and policy
