    Socio-ethical Education in Nanotechnology Engineering Programmes: A Case Study in Malaysia. [REVIEW]Balamuralithara Balakrishnan, Pek Hoon Er & Punita Visvanathan - 2013 - Science and Engineering Ethics 19 (3):1341-1355.
    The unique properties of nanotechnology have made nanotechnology education and its related subjects increasingly important not only for students but for mankind at large. This particular technology brings educators to work together to prepare and produce competent engineers and scientists for this field. One of the key challenges in nanotechnology engineering is to produce graduate students who are not only competent in technical knowledge but possess the necessary attitude and awareness toward the social and ethical issues related to nanotechnology. In (...)

    Engineering Ethics Education: A Comparative Study of Japan and Malaysia.Balamuralithara Balakrishnan, Fumihiko Tochinai & Hidekazu Kanemitsu - 2019 - Science and Engineering Ethics 25 (4):1069-1083.
    This paper reports the findings of a comparative study in which students’ perceived attainment of the objectives of an engineering ethics education and their attitude towards engineering ethics were investigated and compared. The investigation was carried out in Japan and Malaysia, involving 163 and 108 engineering undergraduates respectively. The research method used was based on a survey in which respondents were sent a questionnaire to elicit relevant data. Both descriptive and inferential statistical analyses were performed on the data. The results (...)

    Learning Experience and Socio-Cultural Influences on Female Engineering Students’ Perspectives on Engineering Courses and Careers.Balamuralithara Balakrishnan & Foon Siang Low - 2016 - Minerva 54 (2):219-239.
    As developed and developing countries move towards greater technological development in the 21st century, the need for engineers has increased substantially. Japan is facing the dilemma of insufficient engineers; therefore, the country has to rely on foreign workers. This problem may be resolved if there is a continuous effort to increase the number of women engineers, who currently represent only 1%–2% of engineers in Japan. In this study, the satisfaction level of the learning experience of Japanese female engineering students was (...)
