In the flux of contemporary, technical and social challenges, engineers strive to maintain the trust and engagement of the public. Codes of ethics together represent a key means for maintaining this connection. “Sustainability” and “social responsibility” have emerged as urgent value concerns. This seminar will examine how a careful consideration of sustainability and social responsibility can advance the code of ethics of one particular nuclear engineering society.
Professor Philip Chmielewski is the Sir Thomas More Chair of Engineering Ethics in the Seaver College of Science and Engineering at Loyola Marymount University Los Angeles. Frequently, he has lectured and offered courses in Mainland China as well as in Hong Kong. His research currently focuses on developing elements of a framework for international engineering ethics. He draws upon the works of traditional Chinese thinkers who have articulated social values. Further, Chmielewski develops cases to examine professional obligations in undertaking infrastructure projects.
