Engineering: An Ethical Profession (PE13-02)

(4 Professional Development Hours)  - Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013  8 a.m.-noon



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.

Binghamton University has approved this course for 4 PDH for professional engineers in New York. There is a discounted price for New York State Society of Professional Engineers members. A certificate of completion will be given to participants at the conclusion of the course. The Department of Bioengineering in the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science at Binghamton University is ABET accredited.
