    Abstract

    This tutorial is designed to introduce engineers who work in the military to ethical considerations and the IEEE codes of Ethics. Dr. Starrett discusses the special ethical challenges engineers in this sector may encounter and suggests sources and methods military engineers may find useful in deciding how to handle ethical dilemmas. He also reviews a case study of an Army engineer confronting a professional ethical dilemma.

    Abstract

    In this tutorial Dr. Starrett reviews the IEEE Code of Ethics and introduces a case study of an engineer confronted by an ethical dilemma involving a project for the US Coast Guard. DeKort’s dilemma is described in detail and Dr. Starrett discusses the turning points in DeKort’s handling of the situation. The learner is asked to suggest the best course of action and to cite the relevant principles from the IEEE Code of Ethics.

    Abstract

    This tutorial is designed to introduce engineers whose work deals with issues of sustainability to ethical considerations and the IEEE Code of Ethics. Dr. Starrett defines sustainable engineering as the “process of using energy and resources at a rate that does not compromise the natural environment, or the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” He reviews two codes of ethics (the IEEE Code of Ethics and the ASCE Code of Ethics) that can provide guidance for engineers faced with ethical dilemmas in this area.

    Abstract

    This tutorial is designed to assist those who work with engineering professionals who are new to the field in navigating ethical dilemmas. Engineers who are just entering the profession will inevitably confront ethical challenges in their work. Supervisors and more experienced colleagues can help new engineers handle these challenges successfully by discussing codes of professional ethics as well as sharing their experiences in resolving ethical dilemmas. Dr. Starrett reviews the IEEE Code of Ethics in depth and explains methods traditionally used to make ethical decisions. The author suggests that viewers consider ethical challenges they have encountered professionally and review their responses in light of the ethical principles presented in order to derive maximum benefit from the tutorial.

    Abstract

    This tutorial is designed to introduce engineers who work in the fields of robotics and automation to ethical considerations and codes of ethics. Dr. Starrett discusses the principles of the IEEE Code of Ethics as well as another code of ethics written specifically for robotic engineers. He also reviews current ethical challenges associated with work in these fields, including those associated with military use of unmanned surveillance systems and automated weapons.

    Abstract

    This tutorial is designed to introduce engineers in the biomedical field to ethical considerations (e.g., use of human subjects in research) related to practice in this field. Dr. Starrett reviews the Biomedical Engineering Society Code of Ethics and discusses a case study involving fabricated data and other ethical transgressions of a noted researcher. He focusses on the ethical principles that were violated in this example and offers suggestions on how biomedical engineers can avoid making similar errors. Dr. Starrett suggests that viewers consider ethical challenges they have encountered professionally and review their responses in light of the ethical principles presented in order to derive maximum benefit from the tutorial.

    Abstract

    Engineers are trained to think analytically and base their technical decisions on relevant facts and research. Nonetheless, engineers will encounter many situations involving ethical questions during their careers. In order to improve their ability to make ethical decisions, engineers require additional tools and training. These tools include an understanding of the relevant codes of ethics and learning to recognize ethical challenges and solutions.

    In this tutorial the author discusses definitions of ethics and three historical approaches to understanding ethical behavior: virtues ethics, consequentialism and deontology. Two codes of ethics that software engineers can use as a reference when they confront ethical questions in professional situations will also be presented. The author provides a guided review of ethical decision-making using two case studies. Several suggestions and additional references for improving ethical decision-making are offered.

    In this tutorial the author discusses how people commonly understand the definition of ethics and reviews the IEEE Code of Ethics. The author also provides a guided review of ethical decision-making using two case studies. Three historical approaches to ethical decision-making are also introduced. The author provides several suggestions and additional references for improving an engineer's ability to recognize, understand and respond to ethical challenges in professional situations.
