Arising out of a perceived need to address the growing number of highly publicized breaches in engineering conduct in recent years, this text was designed to offer students and professionals alike a clear, pragmatic introduction to Engineering Ethics. The text offers a decidedly practical, industry-based perspective on how ethics actually work in the real world, and shows how ethical problems and decisions can affect the entire professional careers of engineers, scientists and others involved with technology and industry. With the authors precept that an engineer must understand the importance of integrating your professional life with personal convictions, in order to maintain your moral integrity, the book presents actual case studies to help the reader better prepare for entry into the real-world industrial environment. The book begins with a concise overview of various approaches to engineering ethics, and the philosophical/moral basis for each one. Detailed case studies illustrate those abstract concepts, with in-depth background, historical summary, news media effects, outcome and interpretation. The book then discusses the particular ethics issues at play and what should or should not have been done by the engineers, scientists and managers involved in each instance.
