It also describes such highly successful projects as the Panama Canal and the Shinkansen. A ll the major areas of engineering are covered with interesting case histories describing exemplary behavior of engineers placed in difficult situations. The way in which such ethical engineers can be supported by their professional societies and by the law is explored in depth. Controlling Technology: Ethics and the Responsible Engineer, Second Edition presents a practical and fascinating examination of the moral obligations, responsibilities, and challenges faced by engineers as they perform their professional duties. This invaluable guide is must reading for all engineers, graduate engineering students, and others interested in technology and society issues.
