The IAFSM YP Group is excited to invite you to our next webinar on Engineering Ethics in Practice:

Wake-Up Call From a Brutal Physics Instructor:  Starting with a life-long lesson and wake-up call about the responsibility of engineers, this discussion will explore many facets of professional engineering ethics. P. Kay Whitlock, PE, D.WRE, F.ASCE will focus on the responsibility of engineers to serve the public interests above all else.  We’ll look at professional codes of conduct, statutory responsibility in Illinois, the Order of the Engineer ceremony, compare engineering ethical responsibilities to those of other professions, and conclude with a few examples of the challenge of applying ethics in various circumstances. Although primarily focused on engineering ethics, many points cross other related professions that serve the public.
