Engineers & Responsibility
Engineers have the right & responsibility to choose the proper products
Engineer's have a responsibility to ensure the safety and integrity of their projects are in the best interest of the public and the project's end users. The ACPA has compiled information on corrugated metal pipe (CMP), high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or plastic pipe, and reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) that provides engineers information that will help them in their decision making process.
AN ENGINEER'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE
Different projects call for different pipes, and the ACPA supports the engineer’s freedom to use whichever pipe is best for the circumstance. The engineer should decide the appropriate pipe for the project – whether it’s concrete, plastic or metal. Open competition would undermine the ability of engineers, local governments and public works professionals to design infrastructure projects that best serve their communities’ needs.
WEBINAR: ENGINEERING ETHICS
Ethics are more than just an ideal for Engineers, it is the foundation of our profession. This webinar explores the past cases, hypothetical concepts, and the current canons of Ethics from two different engineering societies.
The course is broken down into four easily consumed sections: 1) History, 2) Canons, 3) Current Events, and 4) Application.
After watching the webinar, attendees will able to:
- Understand the differences between micro and macro ethics concepts
- Learn the history of professional ethics in the engineering field, and exploring when the health, safety, and well-being of the public became paramount
- How to incorporate ethics into daily life, so that the big issues aren’t so daunting.
