The re-siting of the well locations became possible over the course of more than one year of discussions with local government officials and other stakeholders. Great Western has secured surface use agreements for two different sites located in section 30, approximately one mile east of the Pace pad. All stakeholders had a voice and were heard.
The Challenger disaster is held as a case study of engineering ethics. Engineers have obligations to the public, their clients, employers, and the profession.
Many engineering societies have established codes of practice and codes of ethics to guide members and inform the public at large.
Each engineering discipline and professional society maintains a code of ethics, which the members pledge to uphold. Depending on their specializations, engineers may also be governed by specific statute, whistleblowing, product liability laws, and often the principles of business ethics.
This tradition began in in Canada with The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineerwhere the ring serves as a symbol and reminder of the engineer's obligations to the engineering profession. Inthe practice was adopted by several colleges in the United States including members of the Order of the Engineer.
Engineering education Most engineering programs involve a concentration of study in an engineering specialty, along with courses in both mathematics and the physical and life sciences. Many programs also include courses in general engineering and applied accounting.
A design course, often accompanied by a computer or laboratory class or both, is part of the curriculum of most programs.
Often, general courses not directly related to engineering, such as those in the social sciences or humanities, also are required. Accreditation is the process by which engineering programs are evaluated by an external body to determine if applicable standards are met.
The Washington Accord serves as an international accreditation agreement for academic engineering degrees, recognizing the substantial equivalency in the standards set by many major national engineering bodies. In the United States, post-secondary degree programs in engineering are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
Regulation and licensure in engineering In many countries, engineering tasks such as the design of bridges, electric power plants, industrial equipment, machine design and chemical plants, must be approved by a licensed professional engineer.
Most commonly titled professional engineer is a license to practice and is indicated with the use of post-nominal letters ; PE or P.
The practice of engineering in the UK is not a regulated profession but the control of the titles of chartered engineer CEng and incorporated engineer IEng is regulated. These titles are protected by law and are subject to strict requirements defined by the Engineering Council UK.
The title CEng is in use in much of the Commonwealth. A growing movement in the UK is to legally protect the title 'Engineer' so that only professional engineers can use it; a petition  was started to further this cause.
In the United States, engineering is a regulated profession whose practice and practitioners are licensed and governed by law. Each state tests and licenses professional engineers.
Currently, most states do not license by specific engineering discipline, but rather provide generalized licensure, and trust engineers to use professional judgment regarding their individual competencies; this is the favoured approach of the professional societies.
Despite this, at least one of the examinations required by most states is actually focused on a particular discipline; candidates for licensure typically choose the category of examination which comes closest to their respective expertise.Instrumentation is a collective term for measuring instruments used for indicating, measuring and recording physical quantities, and has its origins in the art and science of scientific instrument-making..
The term instrumentation may refer to a device or group of devices used for direct reading thermometers or, when using many sensors, may become part of a complex industrial control system . A Personal Statement of the subject of Chemical Engineering.

Definition. In , the Conference of Engineering Societies of Western Europe and the United States of America defined "professional engineer" as follows: A professional engineer is competent by virtue of his/her fundamental education and training to apply the scientific method and outlook to the analysis and solution of engineering problems.
