Live Webinar: Engineering Ethics
This Live Webinar course is an introduction to engineering ethics, which stresses analytical reasoning and emphasizes clear thinking regarding the application of professional ethical codes to specific cases. The National Society of Professional Engineer’s (NSPE) ethical code forms the core of this class; consideration for the professional codes of other professional engineering organizations is included to provide a wider point of view. In addition, a survey of the major ethical theories proposed by philosophers is presented along with a review of the general relationship between advancing technology and society’s ethical standards. Three case studies are presented to highlight these concepts and aid the student in their application to real life situations.
This Live Webinar course presents a systematical and analytical approach to considering particular ethical dilemmas. It is designed to improve the ability of engineers to clearly express and support their thoughts on ethics as well as analyze and criticize the ethical thinking of others. The overall goal is to gain familiarity with professional ethical codes and different philosophical approaches to ethics such that the student can apply both to specific cases that might arise in an engineering career.
