Ethics in civil


Paper Assignment 1 – Ethics Paper

Note: This assignment is taken from the ASCE Daniel W. Mead Prize for Students with slight modification in the requirements so I could assign a grade.

Topic: "When working in a foreign location, what defines the design standard which the

engineer can rely on to have met his or her ethical obligation to provide a safe and sound engineering solution or design?"

The following can be used to stimulate, but should in no way limit, the discussion:

Engineers today in the global setting are having to evaluate different design guides, codes, standards and practices that are available to them in the region and select the most pertinent to their specific application that will meet their obligations as a professional engineer.

 When evaluating the different codes, standards and quality requirements, how is one to determine the minimum requirements that provide a good balance between local practices versus global best practices?

 Do the local codes and standards, which may be less stringent than the standards that the engineer is typically accustomed to, meet his or her ethical obligation as the design engineer?

Due Date: The paper is due on Thursday, September 17 and should be submitted as a word document on CANVAS.

Requirements: The paper should not exceed 1000 words and should contain the following items:
