Engineering managers have a global responsibility, especially to the human beings who are affected by their products and services. Making ethical decisions is of the utmost importance, because peoples' lives depend on those decisions. Education and training heighten the awareness of engineers when faced with an ethical dilemma. The recommendations provided in this paper will serve to build a foundation from which to make his/her tradeoff decisions ethically. However, it is the individual engineering manager who ultimately decides if they are going to ethically make the complex decisions created by a competitive environment.
