    Ethical Implication: Engineering as a Profession

    Most engineers assume that their job, as an engineer, means that they are part of a profession – the profession of engineering. But how do others view us? Join us for a presentation that explores the definition of a profession, delves into what others think about the job of engineering, and discusses the related ethical implications. Attendees will be challenged to reflect on critical questions about our industry, including: How should we define the profession of engineering? Is licensure still necessary and relevant? What should our values as a profession be? And, what does the future hold for engineering as a profession? Be sure to join SEAOSC for an important and thought provoking discussion on what it means to be a professional engineer.
