engineering ethics/Christian worldview reflection

In the course of their professional practice, engineers face situations involving
conflict of interest on an ongoing basis. Each situation must be evaluated based upon the
individual and specific facts in the case as there is no one-size-fits-all rule that can be applied to
conflict of interest situations. Some situations involve obvious answers while others are more
complicated and require careful analysis and examination. While sometimes the appropriate
response is disclosure of all of the facts and circumstances to all parties, in other cases,
disclosure is insufficient and other courses of action are necessary. In other situations, the
engineer must avoid the conflict entirely or else run afoul of basic ethical principles.
