From the PublisherFrom the reviews:
This book deals with engineering ethics in an unusual and interesting way. Here, Bowen (international consultant and fellow, UK Royal Academy of Engineering) provides a broad, big-picture presentation of the topic by emphasizing the aspirational and philosophical aspects of the engineering profession... This well-written work is a welcome addition to the engineering ethics literature... Recommended.
Choice (August 2009) (Reviewer: M. G. Prasad, Stevens Institute of Technology)
“The purpose of this book is to develop an approach to aspirational ethics. … This brief book, in two parts with seven chapters and an index discusses the concept of ethical opportunities––using engineers to help others. … Engineering Ethics is a good read. … It is meant to help the reader consider life and the effect of engineering on the life of living things. Highly recommended.” (Richard J. Peppin, Noise Control Engineering Journal, Vol. 60 (6), November-December, 2012)
