Abstract -“Professional Ethics and Getting Ahead”
It is said that good guys finish last. Or that the only way to go up is to compromise our ethical values. Although such statements are popular, and they are popular because it justifies the worst sort of behaviour, it is not true. In this seminar, we will learn from evidence on ethical successes and strategies to maintain ethical behaviour in a sometimes unethical world, in particular in the engineering field.
Terence Tan is the Program Coordinator for Computing programmes at Curtin University Malaysia. He has MEng in Computing from Imperial College London and MSc in Business Economics from City University London, he analyses situations from both a technical and management perspective. This has helped him gain Curtin’s Excellence in Teaching Award for the early career category. He teaches ethics and professionalism for engineers and computer-related fields. He co-developed the game used in the “Teaching Engineering Ethics using BLOCKS Game” research paper. Thus, his knowledge and experience is valuable to engineers from early career and beyond with respect to ethics and professionalism.
