Engineering Ethics Training Session

The Tuesday morning Training Session will feature a presentation on Engineering Ethics. CEU’s will be available for those that register and attend.

Topic:  Engineering ethics presentations typically involve a recital of the regulations and laws pertaining to the engineering profession (usually read directly from an overcrowded screen full of text).  Not only do these lectures bore me, but it may actually be unethical for me to claim (PDH or CEU) credit for attending these mind-numbing presentations.  As a registered professional engineer, I am already required to have a “working knowledge” of the applicable rules and laws.  In 2018, I began researching engineering rule violations and ethics infractions to present to engineering colleagues around the world.  These case studies offer constructive insights to guide engineers toward the ethical high ground.  And – you will not need coffee to stay awake.
