Life often presents us with dilemmas: What is the right thing to do? Our technical training as engineers does not prepare us for this aspect of professional life. This webinar explores this question. It also examines codes of ethics for engineers, and discusses their role in shaping the ways that we should conduct ourselves as as we practice our profession. This webinar is designed to satisfy the continuing education requirement for professional engineers in many states.

During this webinar you will need access to the AIChE Code of Ethics (found by clicking here). Please either print out a copy or have the code of ethics open and accessibe on your computer.

  • The Need for a Code of Engineering Ethics
  • Codes of Engineering Ethics
  • Real-World Ethical Dilemmas
