Understanding professional and ethical responsibility
It is very important for us to learn about professional and ethical responsibility not just because of requirements but most of all because soon enough we will also be professionals in our own chosen career. Although our technical skills will tell so much about our abilities as an engineer, it is also vital to have moral and ethical values. This is because as we go on and choose our own path in the “real world”, we will be dealing with a lot of people and some of them may not have the same idea or opinion as ours. It is also highly possible to encounter situations where our values are put to test. This is where our courses – engineering management and ChE ethics – become really relevant to us, because being a competent professional also entails social responsibility, professional conduct and commitment to service.
