AbstractIn this paper, the author asks two questions about the professional responsibility of engineers:ible (1) which types of situation in the practice of engineering require ethical reflection? and (2) to what extent are engineers expected to assume moral responsibility in the practice of their profession? The author concludes that understanding these processes of societal "construction" of demands for ethical reflection in engineering and of engineers' moral responsibilities should be an important objective of the analysis of ethics in engineering.
