Professional Codes of Ethics Professionalism and Codes of Ethics Starter Questions What is a "profession"? the body of people in a learned occupation; an occupation requiring special education wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn The term profession is applied to those persons who have specialized and technical skill or knowledge

which they apply, for a fee, to certain tasks that ordinary and unqualified people cannot ordinarily undertake. The term derives from the Latin: "to swear (an oath)". ... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Profession Starter Questions Is software development a profession like CPA, doctor, lawyer, ? Should software engineers be licensed like CPAs, doctors, lawyers, and barbers? State Licensing

Licensing is a state activity required of those who provide certain types of services directly to the public, such as contractors, physicians, electricians, barbers, and child care providers. A professional engineer is an individual who has been granted by a governmental authority the right to use that title and to offer professional engineering services to the public. Every state has an engineering licensing law, but the details vary from state to state. "PE" = Professional Engineer 1.

2. A four-year degree from a university program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) An eight-hour examination on the fundamentals of engineering (FE) 3. 4. 5. usually taken in the senior year of college Four years of acceptable experience A second examination on principles and practice Written recommendations from other PEs

Some states also mandate continuing education. Who are PEs? Discipline Licensed Civil 44 % Mechanical 23 % Electrical 9%

Chemical 8% All Engineers 18 % 2014 U.S.A. - 822,575 South Carolina - 10,097 The ACM on Licensing Not Practical The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination, required for licensing as a PE, is inappropriate for those receiving computer

science degrees. Not all practicing software engineers graduate from departments that are eligible for ABET accreditation. Large software development efforts often span multiple states, and resulting software might be sold in every state. The time required to update the examinations does not match the rapid rate of technology change in computer science.

It is unlikely that any reasonable test for software engineering skill in safety critical systems could be put into a multiple-choice format. The breadth of people involved in the production of software would make licensing of them impractical and not particularly helpful.
