Engineering Ethics for Texas Professional Engineers
This online engineering PDH video presentation introduces the laws and rules of ethics and professional responsibility governing the practice of engineering in the State of Texas. It also emphasizes on behavior as a professional member of the workforce.
This webinar presents the provisions of professional conduct from two viewpoints. First, your conduct as a professional engineer with behavior that is unique to engineers such as stamping drawings, signing official or technical documents, preparing estimates for clients or employers, and submitting engineering reports to official agencies. Second, your behavior as a member of the larger workforce where you communicate with team members, follow company policies and procedures, and your overall behavior as part of a workplace community.
Furthermore, this presentation discusses the disciplinary cases and its outcomes in situations where professional engineers have violated the requirements of professional responsibility and ethical conduct – the decisions we make when no one is watching.
