Routledge, May 15, 2017 - Philosophy - 710 pages
This volume is a collection of articles published since engineering ethics developed a distinct scholarly field in the late 1970s that will help define the field of engineering ethics. Among the perennial questions addressed are: What is engineering (and what is engineering ethics)? What professional responsibilities do engineers have and why? What professional autonomy can engineers have in large organizations? What is the relationship between ethics and codes of ethics and how should engineering ethics be taught?
