This is for ENGR 183EW as well.
I enjoyed the course. People who don't like learning (even if it's history and background of various engineering fields) will not like 183EW. They will just do something else during lecture or go on their computers. Weltman will actually explain and go a little more in depth about the slides he puts up, rather than just reading it. Towards the end, only about 20 students were on time at 8AM for the course. Many just signed in late or signed in for their friends.
The exams were very straight-forward. Just write about ethics based on the slides and what you know on top of your head for the entire exam session. Easy A if you do all the work. The essays and group essay took more time than expected, but at the end, you should get an A if you are a native speaker/writer. The best part of the course is obtaining a considerable amount of knowledge about the group research topic.
I actually took ENGR 183, but there was no such option in the drop-down menu.
Weltman's lectures were pretty much dry for the most part, but his powerpoint slides were pretty fascinating and interesting. He requires three essays out of you, all of which require you to do research online or in a library. The papers can be quite tedious, however, since each paper is about 5 to 6 pages in length.
The biggest part of the course was the team research project. You get placed in a group of four, and you do research on a contemporary engineering problem. Your group has to present your research findings in the form of a powerpoint presentation as well as a 40+ page paper that is to look professional.
The exams required a lot of writing in a couple of hours, so your hand has to be on its game if you want to finish on time.
