New Book From ASCE Press Tackles Ethics in Engineering
May 24, 2017

Entrusted by the public to provide professional solutions to complex situations, engineers can face ethical dilemmas in all forms.

Steven K. Starrett, Ph.D., P.E., D.WRE; Amy L. Lara, Ph.D.; and Carlos Bertha, Ph.D., the authors of an important new book from ASCE Press, Engineering Ethics: Real World Case Studies, provide in-depth analysis with extended discussions and study questions of case studies that are based on real work situations. Important concepts such as rights and obligations; conflict of interest; professionalism and mentoring; confidentiality; whistleblowing; bribery, fraud, and corruption; and ethical communication with the public in a social media world are discussed in practical and approachable terms.

Organized by the canons of the ASCE Code of Ethics, this book is intended for practitioners, consultants, government engineers, engineering educators, and students in all engineering disciplines.

Copies of the new book, available in soft cover or E-book, are available from the ASCE bookstore.
