2022 Interdisciplinary Ethics Tech Competition
Sign up to find out more about the Interdisciplinary Ethics Tech Competition (IETC) that will happen on Saturday February 19, 2022. This is a partnership program with the Leeds Business School, Silicon Flatirons, and the Law School that is funded by the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program and mostly directed at graduate students, but high-level undergraduates will be considered.
Held annually, the Interdisciplinary Ethics Tech Competition gives students a chance to wrestle with a real-world ethics problem in collaboration with a diverse team of students studying law, business, communication, journalism, engineering, ITP, information science, or computer science. Past case problems have featured a tech company grappling with ethical obligations related to its facial expression recognition product, and an online platform's efforts to address the challenges presented by "fake news."
The competition provides students with the unique opportunity to work as part of an interdisciplinary team on a problem involving ethical, legal, business, technology, and privacy issues similar to what they are likely to encounter after graduation. This hands-on learning experience prepares students to collaborate effectively across disciplines in their careers, and positions students to be ethical members of business management teams.
Who May Participate: The competition is open to graduate students at the University of Colorado Boulder studying any relevant discipline, including law, business, communication, journalism, engineering, philosophy, ITP, information science, or computer science.
