Project Title: 
In Consideration of Systems Engineering Ethics
Description: 

Provide a review of literature that covers systems engineering ethics and addresses the responsibilities of systems engineers. Consider:

  • "The growing global economy has created enormous environmental, social, and cultural stresses, and enormous opportunities for improving the quality of life. Often engineers fail to see their part in this big picture." (Gorman, 2006)
  • "The practice of Systems Engineering can result in significant social and environmental benefits, but only if unintended and undesired effects are considered and mitigated." (INCOSE Code of Ethics)

Recommend a methodology for integrating systems engineering ethics as a natural consideration in system engineering approaches.
