The Application of Professional Ethics

From Jeannette Chou’s lecture we know the following: 1. “practice of professional engineering” means any act of planning, designing, composing, evaluating, advising, reporting, directing or supervising that requires the application of engineering principles and concerns the safeguarding of life, health, property, economic interests, the public welfare or the environment, or the managing of any such act; (“exercice de la profession d’ingénieur”) PEO Act 2. A practitioner shall regard the practitioner’s duty to public welfare as paramount, (Code of Ethics) In this essay you should: 1) In the introduction state the above two points in your own words. Be sure to provide appropriate citations. 2) Follow this with a general discussion on the implications of these points in the engineering design process. 3) Finally, give one or more examples to reinforce what you have said in your general discussion. 4) Conclusion Essay Format and Grading: See the Course Syllabus, Section 4, page 10, Essay #1.
