Lawrence P. Powers Presented Professional Engineering Ethics 101 at NJSPE Continuing Education Event

New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers

Lawrence P. Powers presented at the New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers’ Continuing Education event on Tuesday, May 16 and Monday, May 22 from 10:30-12:30 p.m.  His program, titled Professional Engineering Ethics 101, was broken into three parts:

  • Introduction to common statutory and regulatory ethics rules;

  • Review of the National Society of Professional Engineers Code of Ethics with examples of common ethics rules, illustrative case studies to consider, with particular emphasis on the similarities and difference between governmental and professional society sanctions;

  • Practical reasons for ethical practice, how unethical practice can present professional liability, legal, licensure and moral issues, public health, safety and welfare.

The primary learning objective was to expose the seminar participants to various engineering related professional and statutory codes of ethics in order to indoctrinate ethics awareness and an understanding of ethical standards common to all jurisdictions, including those of the participants, so that the participants understood the boundaries of ethical engineering behavior.
