Engineering Ethics Blog

"A good engineer both does things right, and does the right thing." So writes Karl Stephan on his excellent Engineering Ethics Blog. As Stephen explains, engineering schools do a phenomenal job teaching the nuts and bolts of engineering, but they sometimes fall short when it comes to questions of who will buy the product, what they will do with it, whether or not products can do harm, and how people were treated during the manufacturing process. On this blog, which dates back to 2006, readers will find ethical quandaries related to mass surveillance, climate change, arms control, smart phones, a technological response to mass shootings, and many other topics - all from an engineer's perspective. The treatment of VW's recent EPA troubles, especially, will come as a welcome voice of reason for those who are following the company's possible recall of 11 million cars worldwide.
