Engineering Laws, Rules, and Ethics for Nevada Professional Engineers

Excerpts from Chapter 625 of the Nevada Revised Statutes and the Nevada Administrative Code which relate to the rules of professional conduct, prohibited acts, as well as disciplinary and other pertinent regulatory provisions are presented in this course.
Engineering ethics is (1) the study of moral issues and decisions confronting individuals and organizations involved in engineering and (2) the study of related questions about moral conduct, character, ideals and relationships of peoples and organizations involved in technological development (Martin and Schinzinger, Ethics in Engineering).

Most importantly, it will provide engineers with insight on how to conduct, respect and protect their engineering practice with the utmost professionalism.
