The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and the Department of Philosophy at the
University of Regina are again pleased to present a discussion / seminar focusing on
general ethical reasoning and principles applied to cases and issues of interest to
professional engineers, and students of engineering. Following a similar format but
extending the discussion to last year’s highly successful presentation will be Professors
Elliot and Soifer. A brief presentation of basic principles in professional ethics will be
followed by discussion of prepared case studies involving, among others, issues such as
conflict of interest, confidentiality, and privacy.
