New Book on Engineering Ethics
Professor Deborah G. Johnson of the ViSmedia team has written a new book on engineering ethics to be published on Yale University Press. As a leading scholar in the field of engineering and computer ethics, Professor Johnson provides an engaging survey of the most difficult and controversial ethical topics within the field.
The title of Professor Deborah Johnson’s upcoming book is Engineering Ethics: Contemporary and Enduring Debates. The book is designed for students and aims to provide them an accessible survey of the ethical issues engineers face. Johnson argues that engineering is not merely a technical endeavour but also a social endeavour. The ethical issues arise in the profession’s social practises that are intertwined with technical decision making. Scheduled for release in May 2020 by Yale University Press, the book is now available for pre-order.
