Lockheed Martin Ethics & Business Conduct is committed to supporting business ethics awareness in our colleges and universities, contributing to the ethical development of the future workforce and strengthening our academic partnerships.
Lockheed Martin's Ethics in Engineering Case Competition
In this competition, academic institutions, each represented by a two-student undergraduate team and accompanying faculty, present their solutions to a fictional case involving ethical, business and engineering dilemmas. In addition to the hands-on opportunities for students to learn about Lockheed Martin and its technologies, the annual event compels students to think about the importance of ethics in the workplace and the various real-life dilemmas that can arise, especially in the multifaceted and fast-paced world of technology.
The case competition is just one example of how Lockheed Martin demonstrates the importance of voicing one’s values in the face of intricate ethical dilemmas in the engineering and business spheres.
Why We Hold the Competition
When it comes to business and technology, ethics awareness is a good investment. In today’s highly competitive marketplace, ethics plays a major role in business decision-making where a single misstep in judgment can have consequences across the enterprise. Integrity is so vital to our business that we want students to be thinking seriously about ethics before they enter the workforce – especially in the increasingly complex landscape of technology and innovation.
Getting Ready for 2023
The 6th Annual Ethics in Engineering Case Competition will be held February 27 through March 1, 2023, at the Center for Leadership Excellence on the Lockheed Martin Headquarters campus in Bethesda, Maryland.
