Environmental ethics for engineers webinar

Tensar will sponsor a webinar, “Environmental Ethics for Engineers,” on July 30, from 1 to 2 p.m. EDT. 

This webinar looks at issues of ethics in the practice of engineering, using environmental ethics as the specific framework for the session. The discussion will include:

  • The importance of ethics in engineering practice
  • A review of codes of ethics, their application and limitations
  • An overview of ethical theories
  • An introduction to environmental ethics and concepts in this area, which have bearing on ethical decision-making
  • A real-world example illustrating the need for ethical decision-making and the consequences of its absence

The objective of the session is to provide a framework for decision-making, as opposed to a prescriptive set of rules or requirements.
