Engineering Ethics: Maintaining society's trust in the Engineering Profession – Engineering Council

1 Feb 2022 9:37 AM | Anonymous


Due to the important role that engineering plays within society and shaping our world, it is crucial to ensure that the public is confident that the profession acts ethically.

The good news is that the latest Ipsos MORI Veracity Index shows that 84% of respondents trusted engineers to tell the truth, but we should not become complacent as a profession.

As such, the Engineering Council and the Royal Academy of Engineering are holding a launch event to mark the publication of the new Engineering Ethics report on the 21 February 2022 at 6PM (UK time).

Proposing a series of actions for the engineering profession to take forward, the newly published Engineering Ethics report aims to promote a more ethical culture within engineering.

The report has been produced by the joint Engineering Ethics Reference Group (EERG), which was established by the Engineering Council and the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) in 2019, and is chaired by Professor David Bogle CEng FIChemE FREng, Deputy President of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).

The free-to-attend online event will include a panel discussion with industry experts including Professor Bogle, Chi Onwurah MP, Engineering Council Chairman Professor Chris Atkin CEng FRAeS FREng, Dr Ollie Folayan CEng FIChemE, co-founder of AFBE-UK, and others.

Register to attend at 6pm on 21 February
