Engineering Ethics

We’ve been grateful to UEF for the grants we’ve received for Engineer Your Life, Design Squad outreach and, more recently, Dream Big. There are few foundations focused on engineering, and even fewer that recognize the value of empowering engineers to promote the profession. More than simply providing financial support, UEF grants provide the catalyst for collaboration that helps these programs succeed.”

Grantee Spotlight: Engineering Ethics Videos

The goal of the project was to sponsor a series of two-hour ethics programs for students of all engineering disciplines. The programs were intended to be offered live at a number of selected engineering universities, which were chosen on the basis of the size of the engineering student body, geographic distribution of the selections, and scheduling availability. The programs consisted of a panel presentation developed by and featuring engineering professionals from several of the major engineering disciplines, each of whom was selected on the basis of his/her expertise and demonstrated a commitment to engineering ethics and professional issues.

Grantee Spotlight - Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Best Practices in Engineering Series

This video series was sponsored by the UEF and produced by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The series features interviews with practicing engineers and engineering academicians discussing the relationship between DEI and its relevance to the engineering profession focused on the following three topics – expanding the K12 pipeline, sustainability, and universal design.
