The National Institute for Engineering Ethics was created by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) in July 1988 and remained within NSPE until July 1996, at which time NIEE became an independent not-for-profit educational corporation.

The mission of NIEE, like that of its predecessor, is to provide opportunities for ethics education and to promote the understanding and application of ethical processes within the engineering profession and with the public.

The principal thrusts of NIEE are: Communication, Program Development, Education, and Practice Applications in the area of engineering ethics.

NIEE developed and distributed a highly successful engineering ethics video, "Gilbane Gold," which has been used at most engineering colleges in the nation as well as in industry and society presentations. The newsletter Engineering Ethics Update, published by NIEE, keeps members informed about national ethics activities. Also, an Ethics Resource Guide has been developed and distributed.
