Abstract: Creativity is not reserved for artists, scientists and dreamers! Engineers put creativity into practice every day. Creativity combined with our engineering and management skills accomplishes the job. In fact, ethical engineering practice requires creativity in the project, and therefore, ethical engineering practice does affect creativity. It is imperative that engineers continue to promote ethics, creativity and high quality within the profession to enhance the welfare, safety and health of the public. The side benefits will be an improved image of the engineering profession, increased funding for projects and continued increases in standard of living.
