Ethics in engineering is an important issue that affects the daily lives of almost everyone in the world. Because engineers and related scientists design, develop, and manufacture the many products that the public-at-large uses or consumes on a daily basis, it is in the best interest of all concerned that engineers be held to high ethical standards. This paper will reflect on the corporate culture issues involved in ethics in engineering, and specifically how corporate culture can affect ethical engineering and how it did in the case of the Challenger disaster.
