Abstract

In a world permeated by digital technology, engineering is involved
in every aspect of human life. Engineers address a wider range of design
problems than ever before, raising new questions and challenges
regarding their work, as boundaries between engineering, management,
politics, education and art disappear in the face of comprehensive
socio-technical systems. It is therefore necessary to review our
understanding of engineering practice, expertise and responsibility.

This
book advances the idea that the future of engineering will not be
driven by a static view of a closed discipline, but rather will result
from a continuous dialogue between different stakeholders involved in
the design and application of technical artefacts. Based on papers
presented at the 2016 conference of the forum for Philosophy,
Engineering and Technology (fPET) in Nuremberg, Germany, the book
features contributions by philosophers, engineers and managers from
academia and industry, who discuss current and upcoming issues in
engineering from a wide variety of different perspectives. They cover
topics such as problem solving strategies and value-sensitive design,
experimentation and simulation, engineering knowledge and education,
interdisciplinary collaboration, sustainability, risk and privacy.

The
different contributions in combination draw a comprehensive picture of
efforts worldwide to come to terms with engineering, its foundations in
philosophy, the ethical problems it causes, and its effect on the
ongoing development of society.
