AbstractWhile developing a curriculum for teaching ethics to consulting engineers, the author of this article found very little guidance as to how to proceed.

The author proceeded to do some informal research into the ethical knowledge and attitudes of both consulting engineers and engineering students, and let him to believe that a simpler approach to teaching ethics to working professionals might be preferred to that typically promoted in higher education.
