Engineering Law and Ethics Case Studies

April 18, 2018 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Speaker: Matthew Rechtien, P.E., Esq.

This SE University session will present an overview of the origins, characteristics, and substance of both voluntary-membership and state-regulatory ethics rules pertaining to the regulated profession of professional engineering. During the session, case studies will be presented in order to examine four hypothetical fact-patterns, and the ethical implications of each will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand professional ethics and how they generally apply to the profession.
  • Apply various ethics rules to real-world situations, and spot ethical issues inherent in these rules.
  • Identify the various sources of engineering ethics rules, their typical characteristics, their interplay, and their substance.

This session will be one week later than usual due to NASCC: The Steel Conference on April 11th.

Handouts and registration emails for this session will be sent to SE University companies on Friday, April 13th.
