Engineering Ethics in Action is taught by Andrew Taylor, P.E., Past Chair of the ASME Committee on Ethical Standards & Review. This three hour class features interactive discussion, a DVD presentation or role-play and a focus on technical decisions that engineers must make in the workplace.
This class is designed to meet continuing training requirements for all engineers. One three hour session will provide a total 2 PDH towards the ethics training requirement for a licensed engineer.
At the conclusion of this class, within a given area of technical competence, each student will be able to perform engineering duties in accordance with an engineering code of ethics.
In support of this objective, each student will:
1. Identify factors which can lead to unethical decision-making
2. Apply an engineering code of ethics to a situation requiring ethical decision-making
3. Analyze past & present situations which require ethical decision-making
4. Draw conclusions about the engineer’s role in the business world
Course material is changed biennially to ensure a fresh learning environment for repeat students.
Class space is limited and will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Lydia Serenil at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281-493-3491. Thank you!
Doors open at 7:30 am, and a light breakfast will be provided.
