dc.description.abstract The paper explores the coverage of sustainability in Engineering programmes in Ireland in the context of increasing calls for integrating ethics across the curriculum. It is part of a broader study examining engineering ethics education conducted in cooperation with the national accrediting body, Engineers Ireland, including 23 Engineering programmes from 6 institutions. We begin by describing the current empirical research about the implementation of ethics education across the curriculum, which is predominantly US based, before moving to the presentation of the research methods employed in our study. We then focus on two major findings of our study. First, we examine the views about the implementation of ethics expressed by evaluators appointed to accreditation panels of Engineering programmes. Building on the preference expressed by evaluators for integrating ethics across the Engineering curriculum and on some of the challenges highlighted by them as well as by existing research, we proceed by examining the implementation of Engineering ethics education through sustainability related coverage. We argue that sustainability related coverage might be a good candidate for integrating ethics across the curriculum, concluding with insights and examples that can serve as guidance in the implementation of ethics. en
