Welcome to NIEE!

For more than three decades, the National Institute for Engineering Ethics (NIEE) has served the engineering profession. In late 2020, Purdue University became the new administrative home for NIEE, ushering in an exciting new chapter in the organization’s history. Additional information and updates can be found on our News page.
