“We’re a tech college and have a lot of engineering technology students. It’s very important to teach ethics as part of the curriculum since students in engineering technology can work to be a part of the solution,” said Nakamura. “For instance, the development of reverse engineering as well as a combination of 3D scanners and printers makes it easier to analyze products. Students who gain skills in reverse engineering and also understand anti-counterfeiting technology can make a difference.”
