This section contains materials that examine professional responsibilities for the safety and well being of the public as well as of workers. Over time, the section has broadened to include materials that examine the role of engineers in ensuring the health and safety of the environment, including issues of social justice and sustainable development. Newer sections on "Climate Change, Engineered Systems and Society" and on "Energy Ethics" are in development.
Materials range from essays and cases to codes of ethics and student investigations of problem situations. In the “Other Resources” section you can find presentations and bibliographies about engineering and social justice, and referrals to other sources of information.
