AbstractThis book examines the ethical codes of engineers from a historical perspective, and describes a new model for ethical codes that includes an identified integral community that should be served and protected by practicing engineers. Applications of this new code of ethics are described through the use of case studies, and the code is used to develop a new design methodology based on the implicit notion of promoting justice and peace and reducing suffering. The authors also explore the implication of these new developments for engineering education.
