Obeying the law is what we have to do. Behaving ethically is what we ought to do, but not necessarily have to. This leads to a dilemma all engineers must deal with on a daily basis.

You often have more than one choice but is it the correct choice? Is it the ethical choice? Ethical decision making is one of the chief responsibilities of leaders in any profession.

This presentation will allow you to apply your knowledge and experiences of ethical choices that professional engineers must make on a daily basis. Whether you work in the private sector or with a government agency, you will be able to participate in this interactive class based on real world case studies and solve the ethical decisions you and your fellow engineers encounter. The State of New Jersey requires professional engineers to receive continuing professional competency credits in ethics as part of the renewal process. This workshop will provide you with 2 PDH’s towards your renewal obligations.
