The Ford Pinto Exploding Gas Tank: A Case Study in Professional Ethics (1 credit hours/1 HSW Hours)
This is a one hour course in applied ethics for construction professionals.  It discusses ethical decision-making and a famous case in professional design ethics: the Ford Pinto exploding gas tank. It will help understand the role of codes of ethics. To provide some context and grounding for the discussing of cases, we also provide a brief discussion on how case studies are supposed to function in professional ethics.
