  5. 5. To understand the standards governing what is acceptable behavior in the practice of engineering.
  6. 6. The best way to teach engineering ethics is by using cases…
  7. 7. Students should be introduced to ethics in as many times and places inside and outside the curriculum as possible. Guest lectures Presentations to student chapters of professional societies And many other possibilities present themselves.

  11. 11. Engineering Ethics are SocialExperiments that generate both new responsibilities forcreating benefits preventing harm andpointing out dangersMoral Values pervade all aspect of technologicaldevelopment, and hence ethics and excellencein engineering go together
  12. 12. Micro & Macro Issues Micro Issues concern the decisions made by individuals and companies Macro Issues concern more about global issuesBoth Micro & Macro Issues are important in Engineering ethics and often they are come together
