MAE 400 – SPRING 2022

“ The products of your mind are the most precious
things you own. You must protect them, and
must not do wrong with them, you must do the
right thing. You must always have in mind that
the products of your mind can be used by other
people for good or for evil, and that you have a
responsibility that they be used for good. You
cannot avoid this responsibility….”

Michael K. Boelter

Dean of Engineering

Why are Ethics Especially Required for Engineers?

• Engineering is a Profession

• Engineering is usually done in large teams

• Engineering is becoming Globalized

• Time Pressure is usually significant

• Technical Risk is inherent in Engineering

• Product Integrity is a must!

• While the Business Judgment Rule protects
employees against being directly liable for
many engineering decisions, your work can
cause injury or death!

Recall: The Need for MAE 400….

“ Most graduating engineering students are extremely smart
and amazingly computer literate – yet they have almost zero
ability to be an engineer. The issue is a People Problem!
They all lack;

– Communication Skills

– Business orientation

– An Understanding of the Culture and the System”

John MacMasters

Boeing Technical Fellow

This year we will do a new Ethics Video showing what happened to the “Culture
and the System” at Boeing

Applied Ethics Case of the Month Club

National Institute for Engineering Ethics

Guidelines for Facilitating Solutions to Ethical Dilemmas in Professional Practice

Step 1: Determine the facts in the situation – obtain all of the unbiased facts possible

Step 2: Define the Stakeholders – those with a vested interest in the outcome

Step 3: Assess the motivations of the Stakeholders – using effective communication
techniques and personality assessment

Step 4: Formulate alternative solutions – based on most complete information
available, using basic ethical core values as guide

Step 5: Evaluate proposed alternatives – short-list ethical solutions only; may be a
potential choice between/among two or more totally ethical solutions

Step 6: Seek additional assistance, as appropriate – engineering codes of ethics,
previous cases, peers, reliance on personal experience, prayer

Step 7: Select the best course of action – that which satisfies the highest core ethical

Step 8: Implement the selected solution – take action as warranted

Step 9: Monitor and assess the outcome – note how to improve the next time
