Engineering has existed since ancient times, when humans devised inventions such as the wedge, lever, wheel and pulley. The term engineering is derived from the word engineer, which itself dates back to when an engine’er (literally, one who operates an engine) referred to “a constructor of military engines.” In this context, now obsolete, an “engine” referred to a military.Please also visit the new guide for more engineering ethics masternode-world.comering Ethics Resources • Engineering Cases • Journals and Databases • Bibliography of Books and ArticlesEngineering Ethics ResourcesCSEP's collection of Engineering codes of ethicsEngineering Ethics at Texas A&M University, an extremely comprehensive collection of case studies, including headlines andAuthor: Kelly Laas.It is also clear that any significant engineering development has an impact on society, just as any significant societal development ultimately is likely to lead to engineering developments.
