A Question of Ethics

In April 2005, ASCE introduced a new column, titled “A Question of Ethics.” Published in ASCE News from 2005 to 2010, and in each issue of Civil Engineering magazine since 2011, this column presents and discusses ethical cases considered by the ASCE Committee on Professional Conduct or ethical issues affecting the profession.

This page provides links to the full archive of past columns, listed in chronological order as well as by the featured subject matter and ethical canon. 

Current Question

A commercial touting the benefits of concrete masonry homes is played on radio stations serving counties in a southeastern U.S. state. The commercial features the voice of an ASCE member who identifies himself as a professional engineer and states that, in his opinion, concrete block construction provides a “better quality, better value” option for homes in the broadcast area.
