PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERS CONTINUING EDUCATION
Licensed professional engineers work in a world of evolving technology, increased consumer expectations and other emerging issues. Practice in this changing environment requires ongoing development of knowledge and skills. It is critical that licensees remain current with changes and developments in the profession to render quality services and to ensure public protection.
Binghamton University's Watson School is pleased to offer continuing education courses for professional engineers.
Engineering: An Ethical Profession (PE13-02)
(4 Professional Development Hours) - Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013 8 a.m.-noon
ABOUT THE COURSE:
This workshop bridges the gap between theory and practice in engineering ethics. The workshop will provide real-life cases, structured methodology for analyzing cases and examples of cases that have been analyzed to give attendees a true understanding of what is involved in practicing ethical engineering. Codes of Ethics are also provided and discussed. The workshop will take a student-centered approach and provide ample opportunity for analysis, conversation and reflection. We shall explore both micro-ethical cases such as those typically encountered in the workplace as well as macro ethics which broadens the discussion of the ethics of the engineering profession to include environmental and societal implications.
Who should attend?
This course is open to all engineers.
