Danielle, Thanks for comments. I don't know much about the "order of the engineer". Information is below. As you likely know, it is based on the Canadian ritual of the calling of an engineer and is an oath that is ceremonially read. There are no annual meetings or any other business conducted. Our ...

Engineers approve, sign, or seal only work products that have been prepared or reviewed by them or under their ...

We would like to offer to provide a virtual seminar to your Chapter, Section, company or agency on the new ASCE Code of Ethics. The ASCE Board of Direction in October 2020 approved ...

That is certainly an ethical dilemma. "Moonlighting" has long been frowned upon in engineering and can be done very poorly (i.e., unethically).  Certainly, when all parties agree to arrangements, are aware of all the relationships, then it can be fine for an engineer to have numerous employments.

Good question. I know many engineers have faced this type of situation. Of course, each situation is a little different and an engineer must use judgment on how much risk is increased because of the poor condition. I feel strongly that following the chain-of-command properly is critical to resolving ...

Very insightful question. I think it is wise for developers to ask the engineers if they have any recommendations regarding contractors for specific work. A successfully built project is good for the developer, engineer, contractor and clients. Previously developing solid working relationships between ...
