Developing a Moral Compass - Engineering Ethics

Engineers face a myriad of ethical dilemmas in the course of their careers. Professionals develop a “moral compass” with the help of formal education, moral codes of the professional organizations to which they belong, and, perhaps most importantly, by experience: witnessing good and bad examples of moral decision-making, seeing first-hand the results of their own choices, etc. In this interactive webinar, Dr. Carlos Bertha will first summarize three major ethical theories, and then will discuss the difficulties involved in applying these theories to actual situations that engineers face on a regular basis.
