Everyday Engineering Ethics

All engineers are faced with ethical dilemmas every day. The problem is that most don’t recognise it! Situations such as using your company e-mail for private correspondence when it is explicitly forbidden, even though ‘everybody does it’ say something about your ethical standards. Are you easily led and follow the herd or do you have the strength of character to stand up for what you know to be right?

Summary

All engineers are faced with ethical dilemmas every day. The problem is that most don’t recognise it! Situations such as using your company e-mail for private correspondence when it is explicitly forbidden, even though ‘everybody does it’ say something about your ethical standards. Are you easily led and follow the herd or do you have the strength of character to stand up for what you know to be right?

Since 2016 the Engineering Council has explicitly asked for all IEng and CEng candidates to be able to discuss a recent example of an ethical issue that they have faced at work and often this is the weakest part of the interview. You may be very confident on your technical skills, but the softer skills may be more difficult to articulate, particularly for you to be clear on where the boundaries between acceptable/not acceptable behaviour lie.

It is crucial that you know how to navigate this minefield as making the wrong decision can de-rail your career.
