Engineering Themes: IEEE Ethics in Engineering Workshop

Event Date 

November 10, 2018 - 10:00am

Location 

MTCC Ballroom

Description 

Ethics in engineering has always been a topic of importance, particularly to those of us who practice engineering. We are torn between simply doing our jobs, and meeting the requests or demands of a company’s management. If we work for a company that holds itself and its employees to a high ethical standard, there should not be a conflict; however, what if this is not the case for the company that employs us, or what if middle or lower managers deviate from a company’s ethical position? How should we as engineers react?

The presentation will explore this conundrum as well as offering examples of ethical situations or dilemmas in which we may find ourselves. In addition, we will discuss guidelines for ethical behavior from several engineering societies.

Attendees are invited to participate in a case discussion following the presentation.
