Many situations are clear as to the appropriate ethical considerations; it’s the “gray areas” that can be the most problematic. This interactive symposium is designed to provide a background and basis for ethical behavior, review the codes of ethics of various engineering societies, and discuss real life examples of ethical dilemmas.

Symposium Outline Foundations: What is Ethics?

Codes of Ethics: Review of various engineering codes of ethics. What are the common themes? Review in detail the National Society of Professional Engineers’ Code of Ethics.

Discussion: Discussion of various ethical dilemmas.

Participants will have an opportunity to offer their own examples for discussion.

This two-hour symposium is designed to provide 2 PDH in ethics which will cover the requirement for New Jersey PE Renewal (due April 30). Pennsylvania does not pre-approve courses. We have been designated by New Jersey as an exempt provider of continuing professional competency credits.

Facilitator Wayne Becker, PE has been the manager of diverse technical projects, contributed to regulations and consensus standards in several areas, taught mechanical and ocean engineering, lead the R, D, T & E program of a federal agency, and pursued an independent consulting practice, Salutary Technology, LLC. He has graduate degrees in engineering and in areas that encompass personal and social ethics, and has published on the overlap of technology and ethics.
