This seminar will explore the role of autonomy in shaping ethical pressures faced by professional engineers and engineering degree holders working in Ontario. Drawing on survey data, the seminar will first examine the extent to which engineering workers report having autonomy and authority
at work, and the extent to which they report ethical pressures. The relationship between autonomy and ethical pressures will also be discussed. Subsequently the seminar will draw on qualitative interview data to document the kinds of pressures that engineers (and engineering degree holders) experience, and where these pressures come from. The seminar will conclude with some reflections on the significance of the findings for engineers and engineering leaders.
