John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
The engineering profession is considered to be of vital importance to the safety, health, and welfare of the public. In order to serve the public effectively and ensure the well-being of society, engineers must not only possess and maintain a high level of technical expertise and competence, but also perform under the standard of professional conduct with adherence to the highest ethical principles. In this lesson, you will be asked to study the Code of Ethics for Engineers published by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). The NSPE Code of Ethics for Engineers is designed to provide a positive stimulus for ethical conduct as well as helpful guidance and advice concerning the primary and basic obligations of practicing engineers. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
* Note: This course cannot be used to satisfy Florida’s 1-PDH requirement in ethics training for Professional Engineers (you need to take R171.)
