Course Topics: This course will address the Canons, Rules of Practice, and Professional Obligations as cited in the NSPE Code of Ethics, specifically: the engineer’s obligations to society, clients, and the profession; and ethical dilemmas encountered in engineering practice.

Course Objectives:  Upon completion of the course, the participant should be cognizant of the NSPE Ethical Code  and be able to apply these standards to ethical dilemmas that regularly arise during the normal practice of the engineering profession.
