Course Description:

Within society, professional engineers occupy a place of special trust. Errors by engineers can have devastating consequences. Ethical behavior by engineers is therefore of primer importance.

This course will have you study two documents that pertain to ethics for engineers; the National Council of Structural Engineering Associations (NCSEA) Model Code of Ethics, and the Illinois Board of Structural Engineers Standard of Professional Conduct. While these are written by organizations of structural engineers, the concepts are identical for all branches of engineering. While the first is a model code set for adoption by state engineering associations, and the second is only mandatory if you are a licensed Structural Engineer in Illinois, both documents are worthwhile studying to learn more about your ethical responsibilities as an engineer. So, while you read this course, where is says "structural engineer", think about your own branch of engineering practice!
