Bridging the gap between theory and practice, ENGINEERING ETHICS, Fifth Edition, helps engineering students understand the importance of their conduct as professionals and encourages them to reflect on how their actions can affect the health, safety, and welfare of the public. ENGINEERING ETHICS, Fifth Edition, provides dozens of diverse engineering cases and a proven and structured method for analyzing them; practical application of the Engineering Code of Ethics; focus on critical moral reasoning as well as effective organizational communication; and in-depth treatment of issues such as sustainability, acceptable risk, whistle-blowing, and globalized standards for engineering. Additionally, a new companion website offers study questions, self-tests, and additional case studies. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.
- The fifth edition features a number of new case studies on current events and recent issues in engineering.
- Increased attention is paid to positive and aspirational engineering ethics, how engineering can promote human well-being worldwide, and what roles engineers may play in larger matters of public concern and policy.

- This edition places greater emphasis on clear, timely, and effective communication within the engineer's organizational network and considers blind spots that limit initial perceptions of ethical problems in the workplace.
- The authors continue to explore the most recent social implications of technological advances and the latest views on sustainability while stressing the engineer's role in sustainable development.
- In addition to a renewed emphasis on the engineer's responsibility for identifying, managing, and mitigating risk, the text further explores what constitutes "acceptable risk" and how technological changes and an improved understanding of natural phenomena influence risk.
- Discussion of emerging globalized standards for engineering education, licensure, and professionalism has also been updated.
- A new Companion Website provides study questions, self-tests, and additional case studies.
- The text presents a proven method for analyzing cases using ethical problem-solving techniques. Examples of cases that already have been analyzed clearly demonstrate this method.
- Study questions accompanying the case studies help students focus on the ethical theories from the chapter as well as the practical effects of certain behaviors.
- Engineering codes of ethics are clearly explained and applied to various cases.
- Your students are able to analyze some of the most recent events and current policies as case studies highlight the latest engineering achievements and failures.
- Dozens of real-life cases throughout this edition and the book's companion website provide your students with abundant opportunities to apply the concepts discussed in the text.
