Title of the Project: Student Perspectives of Aerospace Engineering Macroethics Issues and Education
Principal Investigator: Aaron Johnson, Assistant Professor, Aerospace Engineering Department, University of Michigan

By completing and submitting this survey you consent to allow us to use your responses in our research. 

Benefits of Participation: Although you may not directly benefit from being in this research study, you and future engineering students at the University of Michigan and elsewhere may benefit because the results of this study will help undergraduate engineering instructors to design better macroethics lessons and curricula.

Risks and Discomforts of Participating: We believe there are very minimal risk or discomforts from participating in this research study. We will protect the confidentiality of your responses by not collecting any identifiable information through this survey. Your professor will not be informed of your choice to participate or not participate in the research study. They will only see the anonymous responses. Therefore, your choice to participate will have no effect on your course grade. There is a minimal risk that other students may know you choose not to participate in the survey, which is why we are asking you to play on your phone or computer or draw a picture on the paper survey if you choose not to participate. 

Compensation for Participating: You will not receive any compensation for participating in this research project.

Confidentiality: We plan to publish the results of this research study. We will not include any information that would identify you. Your privacy will be protected and your research records will be confidential. If is possible that other people need to see the information you give us as part of the research study, such as organizers responsible for making sure the research is done safely and properly like the University of Michigan or government offices. 

Storage of Data: Data will be kept for the duration of the project and afterwards because we will not be able to identify to whom it belongs. Any identifying information (such as the specific name and number of the course you are taking) will not be stored with your data. Only the researchers on the project and your instructor will have access to your data, which is anonymous.
