Overview
This course is specifically designed for Ohio-licensed engineers to qualify as a "timed and monitored" online course. The course contains an automatic timer that prevents the user from accessing the quiz and earning a certificate of completion until the minimum amount of study time has been met. This achieves the Ohio Board's intent that an online course should be "paced" by the provider. For more information, please see the Ohio state requirements. This course may also be accepted in other states (see the "Board Acceptance" tab above). However, if you are not licensed in Ohio, it is suggested that you purchase the self-paced version of the course.

In Engineering Ethics: Conservatism in Engineering Design , you'll learn ...

  • Different levels and sources of conservatism in engineering design
  • When it is beneficial to be conservative above and beyond base line conservatism and when it can be less favorable
  • When built-in conservatism can be favorable
  • Utilizing conservatism to provide the best design possible based on safety, cost, constructability and productivity

The intent of this course is to help engineers develop an awareness of the conservatism utilized in the daily practice of engineering and how to harness its use for the development of safe, economical and practical designs. This course will provide guidance on "identifying conservatism in design", "how to recognize sources of conservatism" and "how to use conservatism as an advantage". The application of this information is not limited to one industry or a particular discipline. This guidance can be applied from any angle and at any stage of engineering design; not just during the calculation step. This course is written with the engineer in mind that has to make decisions and provide input throughout all phases of the engineering design process.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Different levels and sources of conservatism in engineering design
  • When it is beneficial to be conservative above and beyond base line conservatism and when it can be less favorable
  • When built-in conservatism can be favorable
  • Utilizing conservatism to provide the best design possible based on safety, cost, constructability and productivity
  • Understanding the connection between engineering fundamentals, code knowledge, and experience
  • Determining when it may be acceptable to cut into the conservatism of a design
  • Where the conservatism should be included when designing
  • When codes, specifications, and industry standards may be too conservative for the design application at hand
  • Being conservative while "Enveloping" and "Bounding"
  • What happens to a conservative design from the engineer's desk to the field and does the same level of conservatism translate to implementation of a design

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 15 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
