    TOPIC:           Ethics in Engineering: Why Ethics?1 hour CEUs


    What’s in it for me?


    Here’s part of the answer:


    •           I will meet engineering professionals with interests similar as yours


    •           I will establish meaningful networking contacts


    •          I’ll get my CEU on Ethics for this year


    •          I will see Ethics in Engineering from a new perspective, maybe some introspection


    •          I will boost my pride of being an Engineer


    The Engineering profession is the learned profession that impacts more of the different aspects of human life and activities than any of the others. This entails certain responsibilities than need to be present in the mind of every engineer. Come on Tuesday the 22nd; you’ll look at ethics differently after this day!


    Do not miss the meeting!


    Biography:  Ramiro is a semi retired chemical engineer with over forty years of experience. After retiring from private industry in 1999, he started on an interest he had always had, teaching. He was recruited by the Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico as a substitute teacher in the Engineering Management Graduate Program. He went on to teach courses in Engineering Management, Human Resources Management, Solids Waste Management, Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, and others.


    Shortly after joining the University, the Engineering Ethics Professor left his position and Ramiro was asked to lend a hand. When looking at the course description, he discovered that the engineering ethics course being taught was mainly an analysis of the laws and regulations governing the practice of engineering, with no emphasis on the personal ethical responsibilities engineering. Convinced that engineering ethics is only a special case of human ethics, he went on to redesign the course, including the legal responsibilities as part of the broader ethical field. He taught the course for over seven years, until he moved to Texas.


    Presently he works part time as a technical, literary and legal translator, mainly in English to Spanish and Spanish to English, with some simple works in French and Portuguese
