William A. (Bill) Brant, J.D., P.E.
This experience is designed to make each of you a better person, and, in doing so, make you an ethical engineer in a global society.
Why take ethics? How can ethics help me? What is engineering ethics? Isn't ethics just common sense? Can ethics be taught? How does engineering ethics help me? Can't I just go to a code? You and I will explore these questions.
As we humans expand to a global economy, global ethics, including engineering ethics, must expand. The global economy is driving us to become a single global society of combined other diverse societies. Societies must be ethical in order to co-exist together on our planet. Our own American society demands ethics. Ethics will become to the 21st Century, what the quality revolution was to the '70's, '80's, '90's, and continues today.
"The Right Choice: Applying Ethics to Engineering" will introduce you to thinking ethically and applying your ethics to engineering.
"The Right Choice" is based on the one hour plus lecture, presented to the San Antonio local chapters of ASME and ASM International; and, is written in a lecture style format rather than an academic dissertation. The intent is to make this course more practical, rather than an academic study.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
