📙 Engineering Ethics: Challenges and Opportunities by W. Richard Bowen (auth.) — download pdf


Engineering Ethics: Challenges and Opportunities aims to set a new agenda for the engineering profession by developing a key challenge: can the great technical innovation of engineering be matched by a corresponding innovation in the acceptance and expression of ethical responsibility? Central features of this stimulating text include:

· An analysis of engineering as a technical and ethical practice providing great opportunities for promoting the wellbeing and agency of individuals and communities.

· Elucidation of the ethical opportunities of engineering in three key areas:

­ Engineering for Peace, emphasising practical amelioration of the root causes of conflict rather than military solutions.

­ Engineering for Health, focusing on close collaboration with healthcare professionals for both the promotion and restoration of health.

­ Engineering for Development, providing effective solutions for the reduction of extreme poverty.

· Innovative strategies for implementing these ethical opportunities are described:

­ Emphasis on the personal responsibility of every engineer and on the benefits of supporting social structures.

­ Use of language and concepts that are appealing to business managers and political decision makers.

· Future prospects for increasing the acceptance and expression of ethical responsibility by engineers are envisaged.

· Engineering Ethics: Challenges and Opportunities provides engineers, decision makers and the wider public with new understanding of the potential of engineering for the promotion of human flourishing.
