Ethics in Civil and Structural Engineering Professional Responsibility and Standard of Care (Dave Adams) 1

Ethics in Civil and Structural Engineering Professional Responsibility and Standard of Care (Dave Adams)

My first experiences with ethical theory and the concept of human morality came at a very young age. As an infant, my path through life was built around those who made choices for me due to my extremely limited capacity to make choices on my own, whether good or bad. Choice was mostly a matter …
