Engineering Ethics

How can I apply engineering ethics in the workplace?

Course overview

What do you do when a duty of confidentiality appears to conflict with the public interest? How do you know when you have a personal conflict of interest, and how should you manage this? What are your responsibilities regarding the end products of your work, and the impact these can have on public well being and the environment? How can you avoid being involved in deceiving or misleading the public? These are just some of the very difficult ethical questions which confront engineers and technicians every day.

Our highly interactive, practical one-day course has been designed to help you explore how engineering ethics impacts on your working life. Through facilitated discussion of issues and cases, you will practise identifying and dealing with ethical issues as they arise.

Who should attend
