As such, both Martin and Schinzinger, ASCE, AIChE, IEEE, and ASME agree that codes are not receipt books with comprehensive lists of absolute rules as well as hierarchies of stringency. We can approach ethical dilemmas from Martin and Schinzinger’s point of view. We should identify the relevant moral values and reasons that are applicable in situations, and keep on holding to them as further investigations are made, and engineering projects are unfolding. Secondly, we should be clear about crucial engineering concepts. Third, by being informed about facts, we should gather the information that is applicable to moral values. Afterward, we should

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
