Topics are broadly focused to reflect multicultural awareness. Examples of professional ethics challenges are chosen from around the world. The book includes contemporary issues such as outsourcing, considering sexual identity and orientation when hiring, and the new human rights legal framework, while retaining classic examples of ethical dilemmas in the practice of engineering, such as the Ford Pinto disaster, and addressing new challenges such as from information technology and self-driven cars.

Dedicated to helping students learn about and implement ethical practices in their careers, Ethics for Professionals is well suited to any professional program where ethics is taught, particularly in engineering fields.
