Why study ethics and professionalism? “Ethics is the philosophical study of morality, a rational examination into people’s moral beliefs and behaviour.” - Michael J. Quinn

Back to ENSC 100 “Every engineer who wants to practice in BC must pass an exam in engineering ethics before qualifying. No physicist has to do this. Why is this? It is not because physicists are so noble that their ethics can be trusted without benefit of an exam, nor because engineers are so debased that they must be kept under close scrutiny. No, the ethics of the engineer matter because the engineer is charged with doing something; with changing the world in some way.” - John Jones
