Environmental pollution and control by J. Jeffrey Peirce( )

60 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 3,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complex environmental problems are often reduced to an inappropriate level of simplicity. While this book does not seek to present a comprehensive scientific and technical coverage of all aspects of the subject matter, it makes the issues, ideas, and language of environmental engineering accessible and understandable to the nontechnical reader. Improvements introduced in the fourth edition include a complete rewrite of the chapters dealing with risk assessment and ethics, the introduction of new theories of radiation damage, inclusion of environmental disasters like Chernobyl and Bhopal, and g
So you want to be a professor? : a handbook for graduate students by P. Aarne Vesilind( )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended primarily for senior graduate students seriously considering a job in academia, this book begins with a discussion of available jobs in academia and how to get one. Chapter 1, "Employment Opportunities in Academia," explores the American higher educational system and the pros and cons of choosing an academic career. Chapter 2, "Getting an Academic Job," examines employment issues such as salary and job interviews. "Learning To Teach, ""Organizing a Course," and "Presenting a Course," Chapters 3, 4, and 5, respectively, cover the teaching part of the job, with some theory and discussion on organizing a course, tips on lecturing, and a discussion of alternative teaching techniques. Chapter 6, "Meeting Your First Class," explores first-time fears and what to expect in the first class session. Chapter 7, "Testing and Evaluation," discusses some underlying theory of evaluation of students by testing and discusses the evaluation of professors by students. Professors' responsibilities as an advisor and mentor to students are explained in Chapter 8, "Advising and Mentoring." Chapters 9 and 10 "Research and Scholarship," and "Publishing," address choosing a research topic, finding funding, and how to get your research published. Chapter 11, "Getting Tenure," discusses tenure and the actual procedure for getting tenure. Chapters 12 and 13, "Academic Integrity" and "Getting Fired," relate to the professor's ethical responsibilities, first to maintain academic integrity in the university system, and second on how not to get fired from a tenured job. Chapter 14,"The Academic Career" provides information on managing an academic career. An appendix contains supplementary readings. (Ems)

Environmental ethics for engineers by Alastair S Gunn( Book )

9 editions published between 1986 and 2018 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We have used this book, manuscript form, as supplemental reading in our environmental engineering classes at Duke University. The discussion of ethics is usually reserved for the final few days of class, when the students should start asking?so what?? about course material. We respond to this question by covering the principles of ethics in one lecture and spending two or more sessions discussing various readings. Engineering students who have spent four years learning how to crunch numbers and to solve technical problems to three significant figures admit that the study of environmental ethics introduces new and exciting concepts into their professional thinking, and provides a perspective which otherwise would be missing from their education."--Provided by publisher
Engineering peace and justice : the responsibility of engineers to society by P. Aarne Vesilind( )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The engineering profession has evolved considerably from the early engineers who were, almost without exception, employed in the making of war or in the defense of nations. Civil engineering emerged in the 18th century, providing an alternative for many engineers, and today there is a strong movement in the development of "peace engineering"--The pro-active use of engineering skills in the promotion of peace. Engineering Peace and Justice: The Responsibility of Engineers to Society details the history of the profession, including its ethical commitment to the public good, and shows how engineers have, in the past, served their clients as either military or civilian engineers. As well as presenting a discussion of the evolution of engineering, the book also examines concepts of ethical engineering, including the engineer's duty to society; engineering's relationship to war and peace; and the engineer's commitment to the environment. The final section details some stories of contemporary engineers who have used their technical skills in the promotion of peace, becoming "peace engineers". Engineering Peace and Justice: The Responsibility of Engineers to Society will be of interest to anyone involved in the engineering profession. Students contemplating careers in engineering will also find this book an inspiring guide to more vocational roles in the field
Introduction to environmental engineering by P. Aarne Vesilind( Book )

31 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Engineering, ethics, and the environment by P. Aarne Vesilind( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and Chinese and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's Description: Engineering is 'the people-serving profession'. The work of engineers involves interaction with clients, other engineers, and the public at large. More than any other profession, their work also directly involves and affects the environment. This book makes the case that engineers have special professional obligations to protect and enhance the environment, and the authors - one, an engineer and the other, a philosopher - seek to provide an ethical basis for these obligations. In exploring these ethical issues, the authors aim to show that engineers make a difference. The text opens with a series of case studies in which engineers face complex and challenging decisions about the environment. Succeeding chapters examine different ideas about environmental ethics for engineers, including professional codes and both modern and historical discussions of environmental responsibility. The book concludes with a collection of readings that complement the text. Students, as well as practicing engineers, will find much of interest in this well-argued and thought-provoking book
