Ethics in the study and practice of engineering: Pragmatic and intrinsic values in science and application
This paper will examine many of the ethical constraints and considerations that must be accounted for in the general field of engineering, and will also comment briefly on current trends in the recognition and definition of ethical problems in the engineering field. Through an assessment of in print codes of ethics, intellectual investigations and deliberations on the subject, and a look at numerous case studies, the ethics of engineering will be entirely investigated and broadly examined in a manner that provides concise ,clear and unequivocal knowledge of the engineering ethics. The route this discussion cannot look at every aspect of engineering ethics in this paper’s limited capacity, examination from numerous angles and through the use of various resources will provide precise broad view of the issues.
