health. and lawfully so as to enhance the honor. • Perform services only in areas of their competence.What are the responsibilities of an Engineer? Generally: • Engineers shall hold paramount the safety. • Issue public statements only in an objective and truthful manner. ethically. reputation. and usefulness of the profession. and welfare of the public. . responsibly. • Conduct themselves honorably. • Act for each employer or client as faithful agents or trustees. • Avoid deceptive acts.

In Practice: • Engineers shall be guided in all their relations by the highest standards of honesty and integrity. • Engineers shall not attempt to obtain employment or advancement or professional engagements by untruthfully criticizing other engineers. • Engineers shall avoid all conduct or practice that deceives the public. confidential information concerning the business affairs or technical processes of any present or former client or employer. without consent. • Engineers shall at all times strive to serve the public interest. or by other improper or questionable methods. or public body on which they serve. . • Engineers shall not disclose. • Engineers shall not be influenced in their professional duties by conflicting interests.

) • Engineers shall not attempt to injure. the professional reputation. Engineers who believe others are guilty of unethical or illegal practice shall present such information to the proper authority for action. or employment of other engineers.In Practice: (cont. • Engineers shall give credit for engineering work to those to whom credit is due. that engineers may seek indemnification for services arising out of their practice for other than gross negligence. practice. prospects. provided. maliciously or falsely. where the engineer's interests cannot otherwise be protected. however. • Engineers shall accept personal responsibility for their professional activities. directly or indirectly. . and will recognize the proprietary interests of others.

the usually broad and vague problem is reduced to a more categorical question that can be clearly stated. Finally. as in a new design. the results for the simplified problem as stated are interpreted in terms of the original problem and reported in an appropriate form. In line with this plan. Although engineering problems vary greatly in scope and complexity. First comes an analysis of the overall situation and a preliminary decision on a plan of attack.As an Individual: • Problem solution. . The stated question is then answered by deductive reasoning from known principles or by creative synthesis. The answer or design is always checked for accuracy and adequacy. the same general approach is applicable.

.As an Individual: (cont. The engineer not only makes technological advances available to man but also may be charged with the responsibility to see that such advances do indeed enhance the welfare of man. By virtue of his knowledge. his skill. and his unique role in society.) • Decision making. the engineer must concern himself with the results of technological progress such as its effect on the physical environment and its social and economic impact.
