    Ethics in Engineering Course Module

This 1 hour video course showcases the importance of the work completed by engineers, as engineering  projects develop the foundation of communities and have a direct impact on quality of life.  Therefore the course emphasizes that engineering, practiced fairly and honestly, will protect public health, safety and welfare. Most importantly, it presents ethical decision frameworks that engineers can use to make tough decisions.

    Laws and Rules that Govern the Engineering Profession

The second 1 hour module explores the role of the State Engineering Governing Boards that regulate engineering professionals within state borders. With the advancement of communication technologies, it is now common for engineers to practice throughout the U.S., beyond their home licensing state. So, the module reviews laws and regulations of the different State Engineering Boards, identifies their similarities and their differences, and what engineering professionals need to do in response.

    Practicing Engineering Responsibly

The third 1 hour module is an aide to professional engineers on the ethical management of distinct types of professional relationships.  In addition to engineers’ technical acumen, there is a code of ethics that applies to interactions with other professionals, colleagues, clients and public representatives.

NOTE: It is the individual engineer’s responsibility to determine whether the activity meets the guidelines set forth by their respective state board.

What Our Clients Say

❝ I took the Civil PE Exam and had little refreshers and preparation besides Cognistar. I wanted a review course that would help bring all the work into one location. The course structure was straightforward and helped me pass on the first attempt. I have already recommended to my coworkers. ❞
