    The ad hoc development of the law in relation to the environment is outlined leading to the identification of principles which are said to reflect the ethos of environmental law. The implementation of these principles in legislation and in regulations under preparation to satisfy European Directives, and the influence of environmental management systems is summarised. The article concludes with a ... View full abstract»

    As we enter the new millennium, it seems appropriate to consider the future of engineering and education. This paper focuses on the need to incorporate ethics into everyday practice for all engineers, using biomedical engineering as an example throughout. The authors make the case that engineers need to be introduced to ethics from day one of their lifelong learning View full abstract»

    This paper considers the ethical implications of employing high-dependency technology in a clinical setting. A case study of a patient in a persistent vegetative state in an intensive care unit is used to highlight four of the moral dilemmas which arise for the patient, their families and medical staff: persistent vegetative state and brain death; artificial nutrition and hydration, extraordinary ...

  • Effective capture of respirable-sized particulates using electrostatic precipitator technology

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):33 - 40

    The electrostatic precipitation, widely used for the prevention of particulate pollution from industrial sources, can also be effective, when correctly, sized and operated, for the collection of respirable fine particulates, that is those below some 2 micron diameter, particularly of heavy metals which tend to be cumulative and hence injurious to health. Following a review of the basic principles ... View full abstract»

  • A theme for on-line Web-based assessment [of control engineering students]

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):27 - 32
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    An online assessment mechanism for educational performance using Web technology is presented. The assessment can be undertaken at a time and place convenient to the student and can provide feedback quickly. It has been designed primarily to enable students of control engineering to assess their level of understanding and preparation of an experiment before actually carrying it out in the laborator...

  • Environmental ethics for engineers

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):13 - 19
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    In the past engineers have generally sought and implemented technical solutions to problems posed by other people and not considered ethical issues related to the environmental and social impacts of solving these problems. Engineering ethics has largely been concerned with professionalism and responsibility for technical competence rather than wider social and environmental issues. This article co...

  • WEEE: a Directive too far?

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):42 - 48

    Several million tonnes of old electrical/electronic equipment, albeit no more than 1% of the total waste stream, are discarded every year in the European Union (EU). In 1998/9 the EU introduced a draft Directive, the WEEE (Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Directive, to tackle this increasing waste-disposal problem, although there is, as yet, little evidence to suggest it has any ser...
