William LeMessurier and his role in the Citicorp Tower controversy represent an example of when engineering ethics are
put to the test.
In light of this, please watch the âProfessional Engineering Ethics: The Citicorp Tower caseâ blog post and tweet out about
Then write a 300500
word essay explaining your opinion on whether or not LeMessurier adhered to the fundamental
canons of engineering ethics. As you think about this case and prepare your one page essay, it might be wise to
understand that any ethical decisions we make are inevitably sociallysituated
in nature. That is, our formal and informal
interactions with employers and clients are wholly embedded in how we approach ethical decisions. Unfortunately, it is too
often the case that ethical implications are linked with notions of neutrality, objectivity, and clarity. On the other hand,
perhaps a more realistic approach to ethical studies might best begin with an understanding that ethical decisions are rife
with conflicting agendas and diverse interests that must be negotiated with every ethical decision. As Dr. Loui rightly points
out, as a professional engineer, you need to avoid situations where your judgement as a professional can be questioned.
However, it needs to be pointed out that the very nature of an employerclient
relationship will place you in an ethical
dilemmaÍ¾ one where you will need to reconcile your contractual responsibility to your client while simultaneously adhering
to the moral responsibility of the publicâs safety.
