Abstract: ASCE action to amend its Code of Ethics is a worthy response to the growing need for recognizing that professional integrity and high standards of good conduct are important. The author suggests that the ASCE Code could be used to influence not only engineers in practice, but also college level education and training of engineers. With the proper program, the influence of the Code might benefit all engineers and even other professions. The Society is urged to develop and implement a program for introducing knowledge of the Code and appropriate application at all levels.
